Beyond the Classroom

To encourage learning outside of the classroom, the Honors College requires students to have at least three credit hours of honors educational experience outside of the traditional classroom setting. There are four ways to fulfill the Honors College Beyond the Classroom requirement: internships, undergraduate research, study away, and service-learning.
