Your Honors Academic Pathway: 

  • Take at least two HNRS Seminars or one HNRS Topics
    (Seminar: one credit each; Topic: three credits)
  • Complete either:
    • Minimum 26 credit hours of HNRS courses, of which at least eight hours must be upper-level HNRS (including HNRS Seminars/Topics)
      OR
    • Minimum 23 credit hours of HNRS courses, including six hours of upper-level Honors Thesis and at least two hours HNRS Seminars or Topics

The Reaud Honors College is attentive to the energy and curiosity of emerging scholars. If you so desire, you can fulfill all of your core curriculum requirements in honors sections of core courses. 

Honors sections provide smaller classes, more engaging course content and a supportive learning environment. Academic Support & Professional Development resources are also available to guide you toward success.

 

Advising Support for YOUR Honors Journey

The Reaud Honors College is here to support you as you build your personalized honors academic pathway that helps you achieve your goals.  

If you bring a significant number of AP/co-enrollment credit hours to Lamar University, you need to be careful about preserving the remaining core courses for honors. Please review our non-course credit guidelines.

If you plan to design an individualized pathway, keep in mind that you may earn no more than a cumulative total of 15 hours of honors credit through any combination of Independent Study, Honors Contracts and the Honors Thesis.

Whatever your circumstances, Honors Graduation Counselor Andrew Strange will be available to guide you throughout your honors college career to help keep you on a path toward success!
