Honors Symposia are groups of courses that work together to explore a common theme. Each course is small, capped at 20 students, but at several points during the semester the courses meet together for Plenary Sessions. These may feature invited speakers, panel discussions, group projects, or other ways of engaging interdisciplinary perspectives. The Honors Symposia combine the intimacy and active discussions of small seminars with a larger intellectual context and community that results from bringing courses and faculty together.
