The Honors College believes that learning about diverse perspectives, experiences, and cultures is a critical component of a well-rounded Honors education. Therefore, we are partnering with Africana, African American, and Diaspora Studies (AAAD) and Latin American, Latinx, and Caribbean Studies (LAXC) to encourage students to take the following courses, which will count as Honors elective credits.

You do not need to do an Honors option in these courses. Simply enroll and take the course.

To petition a course for Honors diversity credit, please contact Associate Dean Montoya.
