University Honors accepting course proposals

From “Irish Culture and Communication” to “Journalism Ethics in the Movies,” University Honors Program courses offer faculty a chance to share with students a specialized area of research or inquiry in a University Honors course. 

All disciplines are welcome. Other titles from UHON 351 courses being taught this semester are: “Art and Meaning,” “Philosophy of Nature,” and “Expression, Privacy and Property in the Digital Age.”

The University Honors program pays faculty for teaching the courses and the faculty member’s academic unit receives all the FTE credit for the course. The deadline for course proposals for the spring 2018 semester is March 6. 

The course proposal form and guidelines are on the program’s website. Honors Advisory Council representatives for each college provide additional advice, input and review of proposals. Faculty can also contact Lori Merrill-Fink, University Honors program director, 453-2824 or lomerfi@siu.edu

  • Agricultural Sciences -- Karen Jones
  • Applied Sciences and Arts -- Laura Morthland
  • Business -- Lynette Knowles
  • Education and Human Services -- Ruth Ann Rehfeldt
  • Engineering -- Fran Harackiewicz
  • Liberal Arts -- Ed Brunner
