What Do I Actually Do in the Honors Program?

Good question! 荣誉课程要求的设计是灵活的,并响应你的学术目标, 利益, and course schedules. The requirements include interesting and rewarding course projects, guided independent research, 和专业发展的机会,所有在澳门足球博彩官方网址的时间.  这些活动和经验发生在三个主要要求中, with one requirement completed each semester. The requirements are explained below.

Requirement I: Honors Seminar Course

荣誉研讨会是一门通识教育课程,探索世界各地和历史上的文化现象.  荣誉研讨会是一门写作/阅读和口语强化课程,满足UCC选修课的要求, depending on your degree plan. It’s the only “stand-alone” course required for the program.

In Honors Seminar, we’ll study major foundational elements of society; they may include government, 技术, 医学, artistry and expression, 不平等, 宗教, and so much more.  澳门足球博彩官方网址研究这些问题是为了了解它们是如何不断重复出现的,尤其是在当今社会.  As a part of this study, one goal is to study the leaders of the past (kings, philosophers, revolutionaries) and present (tech geniuses, 业务 leaders, 总统)并找出他们塑造文化的角色,这样澳门足球博彩官方网址就能看到塑造澳门足球博彩官方网址的未来是多么有可能.

Requirement II: Honors Impact Project

Do you want to get the most you can out of your major? Do you want to best prepare yourself for your dream career? 荣誉影响将荣誉经历与主修课程联系起来. 你将与你专业的一位老师单独合作,并完成“荣誉影响”,这样你就可以获得更多的经验,并对你的职业领域有更深入的了解——比班上其他人所做的都要多. This course counts for your major program credit, 而且在你的成绩单上也被列为荣誉课程.

荣誉影响组件可能包括以下一个或多个:

  • 一个额外的以研究为基础的项目,以一篇论文或报告的形式结束.
  • A unique exploration or experience with the course’s topics, perhaps through an internship or service project.
  • An active leadership task in class meetings, through leading discussions or demonstrations as applicable.
  • An active leadership role outside of class meetings, 通过同侪辅导/学习课程为班上其他学生提供支持和指导, or other mentorship and service.

Requirement III: Honors Capstone Research & Professional Development

荣誉项目希望给所有学生一个机会去探索他们关心的项目. 它可能是你的专业,也可能是你感兴趣的东西. Almost anything can be a Capstone Research Project, including research essays, new works or creations, demonstrations, internships and service learning projects, and much more.  你和一位教师一起完成研究,并为你开发合适的项目. After you’re done, 你与文森斯大学社区分享你的发现并庆祝你的成就, 你的家人, and yours friends.

Additionally, you’ll assist in hosting seminars with speakers from education, 业务, 政治, and other community and thought leaders. 这些研讨会为建立文森斯大学以外的关系提供了宝贵的交流机会.  

最后, 你把你所有的工作放在一起,创建一个荣誉作品集,包括荣誉项目的主要项目和其他材料,这将为你未来的努力做好最好的准备, tailored to your goals and discipline.

感兴趣?

Upon completing these requirements, 你会对你的主题有更广泛的了解(你知道雇主会喜欢的),而且会有更好的批判性思考和解决问题的能力(雇主经常告诉澳门足球博彩官方网址,这是他们最希望员工具备的两种品质), regardless of major or job). 你会发展友谊,培养与老师和其他人的联系,这将在你高中毕业后很好地跟随你. 最后的, but certainly not least, 你会省下一点钱,这要感谢为荣誉学生提供的津贴和奖学金. Sounds like a win-win for everyone, right?
