University Honors Program Faculty Handbook 2013-2014

Honors Program, Georgia Southern University


Many faculty at Georgia Southern encounter honors students in honors sections of core curriculum courses. Students know that these faculty are not simply increasing the workload or adding another test to make the course worthy of honors, rather they know that faculty have redesigned the course to incorporate more information, include new challenges, and encourage application, critical thinking, and discussion as well. The small size of honors courses often results in seminar-style classroom experiences where students can engage each other in robust discussion.
