Course Information

A major benefit of living in Honors LLC is the opportunity to enroll in our on- and off-site courses.

Many of our courses meet general education requirements while others are elective credit depending on your academic program.

First-year students in the Honors LLC are required to take LEAD 116: Honors Uncommon Reads. Sections of LEAD 116 are offered in both the fall and spring semesters.

First-year students can choose to enroll in ENG 177 (section GH only) instead of LEAD 116. This fall-only semester study abroad course is 16 weeks on campus with travel to Jamaica over winter break.
