HON 401. Advanced Honors Seminar
The Advanced Honors Seminar is offered annually in the spring semester. It is designed to challenge upper-level students (usually juniors) from a variety of majors to work together on critical contemporary issues. More recent topics have included: current cases before the United States Supreme Court; topics in environmental ethics; issues in American medical care; an interdisciplinary examination of the Holocaust; contemporary challenges to the idea of the University; literary expressions of generational identity; the Bible in American politics; and contemporary problems in American democracy. Future topics will change, but the challenges and purposes will remain.
