Honors Contract

With the professor’s permission, Honors Carolina students can 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.

A student might write a research paper that explores a topic covered in class, but in greater depth or complete a supplemental reading project with a formal report on the results.

This opportunity is attractive to students who may have a limited number of Honors Carolina courses offered within their major. If you are approached about creating an Honors Contract, talk with the student and determine if you can design a mutually agreeable project.
