Interdisciplinary study—Independent thinking.
This program is a separate track of general studies and not a major or a minor in itself. Honors courses have a flavor distinctly different from the regular general studies courses because they use primary source material more extensively than textbooks to enhance the development of independent thinking. Honors courses follow an interdisciplinary approach that stresses the unity of knowledge. The classes are more personalized and typically smaller than general studies classes. Some courses are team-taught.
