The following proposals are still under review:

  1. RE205 - Women, Religion and Spirituality - Mary Stange

    • The Council was unclear precisely what the honors component would be, and so Michael will consult with Mary Stange
  2. PSY  Senior Honors courses-

    • The Council will need to consider these proposals in the context of other disciplinary-based capstone experiences.  Michael will consult with Sheldon Solomon, Chair of Psychology.
  3. BI275  (1cr.) - Introduction to Biology Research -

    • The Council will need to consider this proposal in the context of other one-credit courses.  Michael will consult with David Domozych, Chair of Biology.

Other issues to be discussed by the Council:

1-credit courses

Senior year experience in honors, including departmental capstone courses and departmental requirements for honors overseas study.

Meeting adjourned at 10:00 am.
