Discipline-Specific Honors Courses:

•ENG 1050-900: Composition I (Hicks MWF 9:05-9:55) CRN: 10604. Service-Learning

According to the Department of English, Theatre & Foreign Languages, "ENG 1050 places students in a text-rich environment for the purpose of cultivating skills in critical reading and writing through analysis and synthesis. Within this context, students develop rhetorical reading and writing practices, recognizing and interpreting differing perspectives and constructing claims about texts." In this service-learning class, students will complete five hours of service-learning as part of a team in order to refine and enhance skills of critical reading and writing across genres and contexts. Based on their service-learning experience, students will identify and locate a scholarly, authoritative, and relevant source and write an essay that synthesizes academic and personal understandings of service.

Honors Freshmen Seminar Courses:

•UNV 1000-900: Freshmen Seminar (Milewicz | Wednesday | 9:05-9:55) CRN: 10603.

UNV 1000-901: Freshmen Seminar (Hicks | Tuesday | 8:00-8:50) CRN: 10606. 

There's no better way to think about and reflect on what it means to be a successful college student than to help teach others how to succeed. Better still, first-year college students can inspire and empower others to follow in their footsteps -- and they can change lives by helping others see that higher education can be their future, too. In this class, students will be a sort of college advising corps for a select group of CIS Academy students -- and students' letters with their assigned pen pals will help not only the pen pals, but themselves as well, in their reflection on fundamental concerns of making a successful transition to college: How to apply for college and scholarships, time management, choosing majors and/or minors, academic success skills, and critical thinking.

UNV 1000-902: Freshmen Seminar (Decker | Wednesday | 1:25-2:15) CRN: 10608
