Interdisciplinary Honors Seminars

major minor electives graphicInterdisciplinary Honors Seminars are offered through the Honors Program. They are open to all New Brunswick/Piscataway Honors Program members in all class years, but are generally designed for first-year and second-year students. Faculty from throughout the New Brunswick campuses are invited to offer an Honors Seminar, an opportunity to think about complex problems and issues across disciplinary boundaries or outside of traditional disciplinary trajectories. For the faculty, the seminars are often a springboard for their own research or for course development. Through Honors Seminars, faculty also recruit promising undergraduates to join them on collaborative research projects. Honors Seminars have an enrollment of no more than seventeen students, and involve extensive written work and readings, discussion, independent work, and often include research as well as field work opportunities.  Interdisciplinary Seminars offered under 01:090:292, 01:090:293, 01:090:294, 01:090:295, 01:090:296, and 01:090:297 can be used to meet the SAS Core Curriculum goals in Writing and Communication [WCd].
