A Different Approach
One of the questions we are asked most frequently is what makes an Honors course different from other courses taught here at Texas Tech. Are they like AP courses in high school, where students must read more books and do more assignments? Though that may be true for a couple of our Honors courses, in general what sets Honors courses apart is:
- Class size! Most courses have 25 or fewer students!
- Stellar professors! Honors works across campus to provide students with professors proven to be great teachers!
- Depth of information, rather than just merely volume!
- Cross-discipline approaches!
- Driven students, who push each other to excel!
A Program for Diverse Majors
Honors students can be found in every academic college on campus. To help students plan their Honors courses efficiently, the Honors advisors created "tracking sheets," essentially roadmaps for students in each of the academic colleges on campus, as well as the School of Allied Health at the TTUHSC, complete with suggested course options. Find your primary college's sheet below:
Note: These tracking sheets apply to the Fall 2013 entering class and subsequent cohorts. For applicable tracking sheets to prior cohorts, please contact an Honors advisor.
