Honors in the Sophomore Year

Heather PartnerThe “Core course” and your honors experience don’t end after the first year. We think it’s a real advantage of our program that it continues for all four years.

As a sophomore, you will take in the spring semester “Science Core,” which combines the study of biology, psychology, and anthropology. You will draw upon the critical and synthetic thinking skills from the first year to reach a group consensus about two more core questions:

Unit E: Why does science matter?

Unit F: What does it mean to be human?

And, once again, those questions will be followed with: What, therefore, should we do?

You might elect to add some other sophomore-level honors classes to your schedule such as Creative Writing, Advanced Music History, Contemporary Social Problems, Public Speaking, or Art of the Film.
