Honors Courses 

Our courses must be proposed by faculty, who indicate how the course will provide an honors experience.  Often this might be through special speakers, field trips, or work with primary sources or special collections.  Honors courses are meant to be more engaging, not more difficult.  Because they are small and honors-only, the provide students the chance to get to know faculty and their peers and to delve into topics in discussion and develop their skills in critical thinking and reflection.

Every year we offer a variety of courses in the liberal arts and writing that meet DU's common curriculum requirements.  We also offer a number of two-credit electives in a variety of topics.  Our Advising Notes list the courses offered each academic year, with detailed information for the particular quarter.
