2018 Honors Core Course Grant Competition

Congratulations to our winners!

The Honors Program invites proposals for new or revised interdisciplinary courses for the Honors Core.  The Honors Core epitomizes Honors education with smaller class sizes, active learning, and increased academic rigor. Honors Core courses are interdisciplinary in nature, meaning they combine different perspectives and diverse problem-solving expertise to study important and challenging themes and issues. Teaching a Core course is fun and challenging!

Beginning in Fall 2018, new Honors requirements allow students to take an Honors Core course at any time in their undergraduate career instead of just their first two years. This competition welcomes proposals for Honors Core courses intended for juniors or seniors.

Proposal deadline: Sunday, March 18, 2018
Submit proposals by email to jaclyn.chancey@uconn.edu. Please follow the instructions under “Proposal Format” below.
