Members of the ECU faculty from all colleges and schools are invited to submit proposals for innovative interdisciplinary honors seminars to be offered as a part of the Honors College curriculum during spring semester 2017. All honors students are required to complete two honors seminars prior to graduation. These seminars can be delivered by individuals or by teams of two faculty members. Seminars should be designed for talented first through fourth-year students with diverse academic interests. Each seminar will enroll a maximum of 18 students. Preference will be given to fully developed, academically rigorous course proposals that incorporate innovative approaches to teaching and evaluating students. The deadline for submission is March 11, 2016.
