Honors First Year Seminars and Honors Writing for College

Choosing your FYS: Information for Fall 2014 Incoming Freshmen

 If you are coming to the College as a first-year student in Fall 2014, you will need to rank order your four preferences.  
 The website through which you will make these choices will be open from Friday, May 30, at 9:00 a.m. to Friday, June 20, 
 at 5:00 p.m.

Please see below for the list of Fall 2014 Honors First Year Seminars and linked descriptions for each one.:

Students coming into the Honors Program in the Fall of 2014 will receive more information regarding these choices at Orientation. 

 

 Here are a few things to remember as you make your selection:

  • Since the FYS does not count for any other course requirement, you should choose your preferences based solely on your interest in the course topic.
  • Not every student will be placed into a Fall FYS. Because of particular degree requirements and/or scheduling needs, some students will take it in the Spring instead. But since these determinations haven't yet been made, every student should submit his or her list of preferences.
  • For more information, please visit the First Year Seminar home page. 

 

All other Honors Seminars are listed in the PDF attached here. Each counts toward breadth Core areas, as well as a variety of Pathway and/or Major and Minor requirements.

Please note: 

For students following a catalog prior and including the 2012-2013 school year, In order to complete the requirements for the Honors Program, you must take Honors Ethics and five additional seminars, one in each of the following categories: Honors Versions of the Self, Honors Art of Culture, Honors Hudson River Valley Studies, Honors Global Engagement, and Honors Science, Technology, and Society.

You will not get credit if you take two of the same seminar. For example, if you took Versions of the Self: Don Quixote and his Legacy AND Versions of the Self: Creation and Creativity, you would get Honors credit for only one of these seminars.

Before you can register, you must meet with your primary academic adviser in order to be "enabled" to register. You do not need the Director's signature to register for Honors courses during the Preregistration period. However, if you need to add an Honors course during the Add/Drop period then you will need to obtain the Director's signature. You are welcome to enroll in more than one Honors course in any given semester. If you have any questions about your Honors Program progress, please contact the Director, Dr. Lyn Lepre.
