Department Dedicated Honors Courses

Sometimes academic departments offer dedicated Honors Courses that are neither Honors Seminars nor are they on the approved General Education lists.

These courses can satisfy the H3 requirement. If the course is a 300/400 level course it would satisfy the H5 requirement. 

If the course is a department specific freshmen seminar, it will not satisfy any of the H1-H8 honors requirements.  However, Honors Students are encouraged to take these courses. They will be enriched courses, they will have a lower enrollment, and they bring Honors Students together. 

For the latest course information please consult the UMass Lowell online catalog.
