Junior Year - Help in Deciding

Please read the requirements carefully. Any and all questions pertaining to these requirements should be directed to or 656-3344

In choosing whether to pursue an HEC (HON 196) or a section of HON 195, students might find useful the following questionnaire:

If you have identified an area of interest that may lead to a thesis project and are able to identify a specific course in your field of study that would be very valuable to your thesis preparation and/or are very interested in a specific course and motivated to go well above and beyond the standard requirements for that course:

Pursue the HON 196A (1 + 3 credit Coursework HEC) option to fulfill your Junior year HCOL requirement.

If you are currently doing or planning on doing significant supervised research with a tenured or tenure track faculty member (in a lab, in the field, or in the studio):

Pursue the HON 196B ( 3 credit Lab/Studio/Performance Space HEC) option to fulfill your Junior year HCOL requirement.

To clarify, CAS students can fulfill Junior-year HCOL requirements with one of the following combinations:

  • HON 196A & associated course + HCOL 101
  • HON 196A & associated course + HCOL 101 waiver
  • HON 196B + HCOL 101
  • HON 196B + HCOL 101 waiver
