Minor in Honors Transdisciplinary Studies
The Minor in Honors Transdisciplinary Studies, hosted by the Farquhar Honors College, provides a purposeful and applied supplemental course of study culminating with a reflection essay describing a culminating/capstone honors experience. Students work with a faculty mentor to develop a program of advanced study across disciplines that broadens student perspective and deepens student understanding of issues reflected in the culminating/capstone experience.
