Honors Discovery courses...

  • are designed specifically for Honors students.

  • are smaller, more discussion-based, and more hands-on than traditional Discovery courses.

  • provide students with opportunities to interact closely with faculty and get to know their peers in an engaged, intellectual community.

  • each count for 4 Honors Units

  • are often students' favorite courses at UNH!

Discovery Flex Option

Like all students at UNH, members of the Honors College complete the requirements of the Discovery Program, which is designed to ensure that students from all majors have a fundamental understanding of the most important areas of knowledge. If there is a course that does not carry a Discovery designation, but that fulfills the learning outcomes of a Discovery requirement, Honors students may propose to take that course instead. While using a different course to fulfill a Discovery requirement does not specifically count toward Honors requirements, the option provides more flexibility for Honors students to pursue their interests.
