The Honors Program hosted its “Pizza with Professors” event on March 5, which is held every semester to discuss the courses that the Honors Program will offer the next semester. Along with the information presented, the event features food and introduced the Honors faculty.
The Honors courses that will be offered Fall 2019 include the following: Photography, ART 1050-H01; Public Speaking COMM 1020-H01; Thesis, ENGL 2014-H01; Intellectual Traditions of the West, ENGL 2015-H01; Information in Our Lives, HONR 2850-H01; and American National Government, POLS 1100-H01.
Honors courses are very similar to other courses but they tend to have a smaller class size, are more discussion based, and fulfill some requirements for graduating with Honors. In order to graduate with Honors, you have to take Honors Thesis (ENGL 2014-H01), Intellectual Traditions of the West (ENGL 2015-H01), and two other honors courses of your choice. And if there isn’t a class that you’re interested in, you can do an Honors contract and essentially turn any class into an Honors class. Another requirement is applying to the Honors program, which can be done at snow.edu/academics/honors/apply.
Eleanore Johanson, a former Snow Honors Program student had this to say about the program: “Honors classes were the best ones I took at Snow. Not only were they my favorite classes in terms of material, but also when it came to my classmates and professors. I learned so much in my Honors classes and if I could do it again, I would!”
