University Honors Program | Colloquia Preview

Each semester, the Honors Program and the Student Honors Board hosts a colloquia preview. Professors teaching Honors colloquia the next semester are invited to provide a brief introduction to their class and take questions from students. Below, you'll find the preview for Spring 2014 courses. For professors who could not attend the preview Honors Director Michael Manson has said a few words about their courses.
