Honors Seminars

An Honors Seminar is a 3000/4000 level dedicated Honors course designed for Honors students. Enrollment in the class is typically between eight and 19 students. Please consult the UMass Lowell online Catalog for the latest information.

Honors Seminars are engaging, discussion-based courses where students will apply critical thinking skills and obtain feedback on their written, verbal, and/or digital communications.

Each seminar is accessible and available to all majors across campus. This creates a classroom environment where interdisciplinary discussion, thought, and perspective are not only sought, but they are encouraged.

All Honors College students must take at least one honors seminar to satisfy the H6.

All Honors Seminars have a 301, 302, 303, etc., section number and can satisfy the H3, H4, H5, or H6 Honors Course Requirements. It may be possible to successfully petition for an HONR.3200 course to have either the AH or SS designation.
