My most rewarding teaching experience at the University was an Honors Carolina course I taught. Students consistently posed such thoughtful questions that the course became an exhilarating teaching — and, indeed, learning — experience for me.

Honors Contract

With the professor’s permission, Honors Carolina students may pursue an independent project of their own design within a regular course. The project should complement the course work and must produce a tangible final product — written, performed, or exhibited.

If you are approached about creating an Honors Contract, please talk with the student and determine if you can design a mutually agreeable project.
