Honors Academic Courses


Honors University Core

Student can earn honors credit by taking the Honors version of their required University Core courses.

Example: Students can take Honors World Literature before 1600 as their required core literature course or Honors Calculus I as their required core math course.

*Please note that Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, CLEP, ACT/SAT, and dual-enrollment credits while accepted as Auburn credits will not be accepted as Honors College credits.*

Honors Departmental

Students may choose to complete the Honors version of major specific, departmental courses.

Example: Student who are required by their major, or minor, to take Organic Chemistry can opt to take the Honors version of Organic Chemistry or students who are majoring or minoring in a business based field can take Honors Principles of Accounting to fill a requirement while receiving honors credit.

*Please note that some courses have prerequisites.*

Honors Interdisciplinary

Interdisciplinary core courses offered by the Honors College are specialized classes available to Honors students each semester. These classes are distinguished from traditional courses by utilizing a strong emphasis on cultivating new methods of thinking and communicating ideas. These interdisciplinary core courses involve engaging and enriching class discussions requiring in-depth thinking and reasoning. As part of Auburn University’s land grant mission these classes impart the knowledge, skills, and values so essential to education and the creation of responsible citizens on both a local and global scale.

Example: Student who take Technology and Culture I & II examine the intersections of technology and culture in a variety of social, historical, and professional contexts. Students explore how humans use technology to shape their environment, discuss how technologies are understood and used by diverse people around the globe, investigate the forces behind technological and cultural change, and study the relationship between technology and science.

Honors Study and Travel

Honors Study and Travel, HONR 3087, is a course designed to inform students about a specific country abroad or a region within the United States. Students study the culture and history of the destination throughout the semester and then travel to that destination as the culminating experience for the course.

Example: History professor, Dr. Sippial, taught a small group of honors student about Cuban culture and history. Once the semester ended, the students took a trip to Cuba to explore the subject matters they studied during the regular semester. This a great opportunity to study abroad if you want to go on a shorter trip or you have a curriculum that doesn’t allow you to be off campus for a whole semester.

Honors Seminars

Honors Seminars, HONR 3007, are taught in small discussion groups similar to graduate courses. Students are not required to have a background in the topic, only possess an interest in the material. Seminar topics vary and are announced each semester. These courses count towards graduation as elective hours.

Example: The Global Citizenship course focuses on students discovering the answer to “what does it mean to be a global citizen?”

Honors Research Seminars

Honors Research Seminars, HONR 3987, provide Honors students with a research experience under the close supervision of an Auburn faculty member. The course is designed to enable a faculty member to mentor a number of students who are working on collaborative research. Research Seminar course topics vary and are announced each semester.

Examples: Marine Research students enjoyed the opportunity to research in and out of the lab live coral reef organisms (sea anemones, shrimps, fishes) from the Caribbean Sea. During spring break, these students take a trip to the Florida keys to conduct field surveys, and go on snorkeling trips to collect samples of the organizms they have been researching. The only prerequisite for this class is General Biology. Most students who take this class are not science based majors.

Human Genomics and Personalized Medicine, lead by one of Auburn’s Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology professors, is another popular research seminar. Students have the unique opportunity to learn more about the human genome. This course is great for any students who are pursuing in professional health degrees.

Honors Contract Courses

Honors Contracts enable students to earn credit by incorporating an Honors component within a regularly offered class. This is a great way to customize your Honors experience, form a relationship with your professors, and get the most out of your major or minor classes. Completion of the Honors Contract form with faculty member and department head approval is required and must be submitted by the 15th day of class. Courses that may be contracted include:

    • A core course that cannot be taken as Honors due to a scheduling conflict or lack of an Honors version.
  • A course required to complete the student’s College Curriculum Model.

Honors Participation Courses


Honors Freshmen Exploration, HONR 1077

The Freshmen Exploration course introduces students to Auburn University and the Honors College. Each week, guest speakers present topics relevant to Honors students. Some of the topics discussed include Study Abroad, campus involvement, course registration, National Prestigious Scholarships, service learning, and more.

Honors Lyceum

Every semester the Honors College offers Honors Lyceum classes on varying topics. Always in high demand, the Honors Lyceum provides Honors students with an open forum for discussion of current events, international affairs, and controversial issues. Subject matter for the course varies from semester to semester, but has recently focused on such issues as: world hunger, the reform of undergraduate education in the United States, service learning, faculty research on the Auburn campus, and cultural learning experiences.

Examples: Project Horseshoe Farms Tutoring is a remote tutoring program where honors students tutor middle schoolers from Greensboro, Alabama in math and reading via skype. The honors students are paired with the same middle schooler every week in an effort to make an impactful connection, all while helping the student with their academic pursuits.

Times on Tuesday is another honors lyceum for students interested in current events. Each week the students read the New York Times and come together for discussion on the week’s biggest topics.

Honors Book Club

During the semester students typically read two to three books and actively participate in class discussions.

These classes are typically taught by higher administers and faculty on campus who come from all disciplines of the University. The books read are hand-picked by the instructor and are usually more contemporary.

Honors Forum

Students enrolled in the Forum course select a minimum of ten campus lectures, films, and performances from a pre-approved list to attend. The events span a wide range of subjects and students submit a reflective essay after each event attended.

This class is a great way for students to engage in the vast array of opportunities provided by the University and its partners while earning honors credit.

Honors Senior Year Experiences


Honors Research

Students work with a departmental professor in their major or minor to complete a project of their choosing.

Typically, students will participate in honors research their junior or senior year. For majors that require research, you can take the honors version of research and meet both your requirement and receive honors credit.

Honors Thesis

Students work with a departmental professor in their major or minor to complete a project of their choosing and produce a written document or oral presentation.

Honors thesis is a wonderful option for any student who wants the experience of writing an undergraduate thesis. Writing a thesis benefits both students preparing to attend professional or graduate school, as well as those entering directly into the workforce.

Honors Special Topics

Students work with a departmental professor in their major or minor to complete a project of their choosing. Honors Contract courses in the major field of study at the 4000-5000 level Students may contract courses in their major field of study by incorporating an Honors component within a regularly offered class.

This course is very similar to Honors Research. It gives students an opportunity to work one on one with a professor on a project that is interesting to them.

Graduate-level courses in the major field of study

Students who meet the required pre-requisites may take graduate-level courses within their field of study. A maximum of twelve of these hours may count towards both the student’s undergraduate and graduate degrees at Auburn University. These graduate courses tend to be 6000 level courses that bridge undergraduate and graduate level courses.

Since the human genome sequencing was first finished in 2003, our knowledge of genomics and genetic diseases caused by mutations in single or multiple genes have exploded. The future of human and veterinary medicine is individualized treatment. For example, for the same disease, cystic fibrosis, different patients need to be treated differently due to different mutations they harbor. The future of pharmacy practice is also going to be individualized, because the same drug can have different effects based on different genetic makeups of the patients, a branch of science called pharmacogenomics. This course will introduce honors students who are interested in pursuing a career in human or veterinary medicine or pharmacy to some examples of this rapidly expanding field. Methods used in obtaining the knowledge will also be introduced. With this course, the student is expected to have a thorough understanding of the historical and current status of the studies on genomics and personalized medicine.HONR 3007EA115608Hon Seminar: Genomics & Personalized HealthM0200-04303Tao

No book required. Will use small book excerpts and journal articles available through RBD’s databases. Description: Storytelling is not just for creative writers. In reality, all professionals tell stories to communicate what they do and who they are. For STEM professionals, in particular, stories can communicate research goals and ideas, data, and actionable conclusions. In this reading group, we will investigate how STEM professionals communicate their work and findings through storytelling. Through readings and discussion, participants will learn strategies for communicating their professional identities and research to various audiences (other professionals in their fields, professional nonexperts, and public audiences).
