UT Tyler Honors Program

Honors Core

Honors students are released from meeting many of the specific courses required in the university's core curriculum. Instead, Honors students will take Honors seminars (HNRS) to replace 12 of the following 18 hours of core curriculum requirements: English composition (6 hours), world literature (3 hours), humanities (3 hours), fine and performing arts (3 hours), and social and behavioral sciences (3 hours). (If you already have credit for some of these courses, the Honors advisor will work with you to find alternative course work.) Qualifying students will take HNRS 2413 (Honors Calculus) and HNRS 2414 (Honors Calculus) in their freshman or sophomore years.

Below are descriptions of the classes offered in the Honors core along with links to the course syllabi.
