How to Construct Your Own Honors Course

Because the Davidson Honors College is committed to student engagement in learning, we offer the opportunity for students to collaborate with faculty in developing their own Honors courses. Any DHC student in good academic standing may make a regularly scheduled 3- or 4-credit course into an Honors course by approaching the faculty member teaching that course and asking him/her to grant one credit of independent study (HONR 192, 392, or 492) to do additional coursework. The faculty member must be willing to evaluate and grade the student’s independent study work, and the student must complete additional assignments (such as additional reading, writing, fieldwork, research, or community service) to earn the additional credit.

Honors Independent Study Approval Form

The Davidson Honors College offers students the opportunity to engage in independent study under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Any DHC student in good academic standing may propose an Honors Independent Study Project by approaching a faculty member and asking him/her to supervise the project for independent study course credit (HONR 192, 392, or 492). The faculty member must be willing to evaluate and grade the student’s independent study project, and the student must develop a project that entails the completion of academic assignments of sufficient scope to justify the agreed number of credits.
