The Georgia Tech Honors Program seeks proposals for Honors Program special topics courses to be offered in upcoming semesters. These three-credit courses are intended to introduce a small group of intellectually active undergraduate students to innovative and inquiry-based topics in a particular academic discipline or, ideally, in an area of interdisciplinary investigation; in either case, the courses may be taught individually or by a combination of instructors. While there is no set of specific requirements, the goal is to engage and challenge the students to explore questions rather than merely to expect answers from the instructor(s). To promote this spirit of active engagement and inquiry, enrollment in the Honors Program special topics courses will be limited to a maximum of twenty students.
Faculty members interested in teaching a special topics course are urged to email a brief description of the proposed topic to the Honors Program. Formal requests for proposals usually go out early each semester. Please note that the courses should be geared to accommodate all majors. Therefore, we prefer no prerequisites be specified.
If you have any questions about the Georgia Tech Honors Program please contact us via e-mail or phone. We look forward to hearing from you.
