Honors courses are project-based and work best in the project-based context of PEG created courses. As a result, only PEG curriculum is available for Honors designation unless a partner curriculum is the only option available for the course.
Honors courses require students to engage in activities that develop personal character while also serving their community or beyond. A student can complete a single project or a series of projects, worth a total of 15-20 hours of work. Honors projects should directly relate to the course material in some way but be an opportunity to learn at a greater depth or to expand upon a course concept. Honors project plans are developed by the student, with the guidance of his or her instructor; the plan must be approved by the course instructor.
