A. Absolutely. All the classes at ST。网易彩票 are challenging, and that certainly includes the 荣誉计划. That said, the program’s goal is not simply to make classes harder, but to provide the opportunity for students to go deeper into the material. We challenge and inspire students through our courses.
Q. Can students of any major join the 荣誉计划?
A. Yes! That means the 荣誉 program is diverse and provides opportunities for students to learn from other disciplines.
Q. How will the 荣誉计划 fit into the rest of my academic plan?
A. The 荣誉' seminars and courses you’ll take satisfy requirements in the Liberal 艺术s core curriculum required of all students, as well as satisfying requirements in your major.
Q. Does the 荣誉计划 require me to take additional credits hours to graduate?
A. The 荣誉计划 is structured and designed in such a way that students do not need to spend extra time at the university. Almost all Honors courses satisfy a degree credit that every student is required to take for their major. Honors students do take an addition three credit hours, but they are split up into three separate one-hour seminars. We believe these one-hour seminars are greatly beneficial, and 荣誉 students say they enjoy the experience. 你未来的四年计划.
