Honors First Year Seminars

Fall 2018 Seminar List (pdf)

In their first semester, all students are required to enroll in a 1-credit-hour freshman honors seminar that serves as an introduction to the Honors Program, the resources offered by the University of Kansas, and one of their academic areas of interest.

While closely examining a specific topic, students develop their skills in research, reading, writing, and in-depth discussion. The instructor of the student's seminar also serves as the academic honors advisor for the enrolled students.
