Spring 2019 Advising Information
As you’ve looked over the Honors Advising information sheet I sent earlier, you’ve probably noticed that there is a new course sequence for completing the Honors Capstone Project. This will affect juniors (i.e. students for whom the Spring 2019 semester is their second-to-last spring semester on campus), but will be of interest to all.
It’s laid out visually in the attached flyer and here’s the scoop:
Junior year, Spring semester (i.e. your second-to-last spring semester on campus)
- You’ll take HONS 3850: Directed Research Practicum (1 unit)
- You’ll present a poster on your preliminary research topic at the Honors Capstone Conference
Senior year, Fall semester (i.e. your last fall semester on campus)
- You’ll take HONS 3500: Information/Research/Analysis (3 units, GE Area E)
- You’ll design and complete your Honors Capstone Project and write a draft of your article for the Honors Journal of Exploratory Research
Senior year, Spring semester (i.e. your last spring semester on campus)
- You’ll take HONS 4960: Honors Presentation Seminar (1 unit)
- You’ll publish your article in the Honors Journal of Exploratory Research
- You’ll present your research at the Honors Capstone Conference
You can, of course, finish your Honors Capstone Project before you graduate (i.e. present in your last spring on campus and then graduate in the summer or fall), but please be sure to start the 3-semester course sequence when you have at least 2 spring semesters left as an undergraduate.
As always, please see me with any questions about your Capstone, your Honors classes, etc.
Important Note on Class Standing Information and the Honors Classes to Focus on Taking:
- If you will be a sophomore next year (2nd year on campus and/or 30-59 units completed), please select any classes you haven’t yet taken from those listed in the sophomore group.
- If you will be a junior next year (3rd year on campus and/or 60-89 units completed), please select any classes you haven’t yet taken that are listed in the junior group.
- If you will be a senior next year (4th year on campus and/or over 90 units completed), please select any classes you haven’t yet taken yet that are listed in the senior group.
