The Honors Core Sequence integrates a significant portion of the college’s general education requirements, including Writing, Speech and Inquiry, the cluster requirement, and at least four of the college’s seven required intellectual perspective courses.

The sequence is designed to build a scholarly community that intellectually challenges honors students, provides innovative learning opportunities, builds an advanced foundation for interdisciplinary and global inquiry, and provides advanced opportunities for oral and written communication.
