Queries about late applications should be sent to the Instructor of the Seminar.
In the body of an email send the following information: name, student ID, number of credits completed by time of application, local telephone number, email address, and a brief statement of interest in the subject matter of the Seminar. Attach to the email a substantial essay that you have written for another course that exemplifies your best analytical thinking sent as an attachment to the instructor of the Seminar. Send the email to the Instructor of the course you wish to take and a copy to John Dietrich (firstname.lastname@example.org)
APPLYING FOR YOUR SECOND HONORS SEMINAR
Students applying to take a second Honors Seminar should, in addition to all the information above, note their current Seminar, the name of the instructor of their current Seminar, and their midterm grade for Seminar. Send this information directly to the instructor teaching the Seminar you wish to take. Copy John Dietrich (email@example.com) on the email.
The target dates for Honors Seminar applications are April 14th for fall Seminars and November 14th for spring Seminars.
Instructors select students for their Honors Seminars based on stated interest in the subject matter, an in-depth engagement with course material as demonstrated by the writing sample and an interest in writing research papers.
Notification of acceptance in Honors Seminars will be made by the end of the semester. Because individual registration dates occur before Seminar acceptance dates, all students are advised to register for an alternative 4-point class that can be dropped once the student is admitted to a Seminar.
Questions about individual seminars should be addressed to the Seminar Instructors.
Inquiries about the Honors Program can be addressed to: Professor Carol Martin, Director of the Honors Program. firstname.lastname@example.org
