Advanced Seminars

Liberal Arts Core Honors classes: You may choose to take Advanced Honors Seminars that satisfy the University’s Liberal Arts Core requirements. Honors sections of these courses, developed and offered by individual professors and departments, will present a greater challenge to those enrolled. On rare occasions, these Honors sections will be opened to students outside the program with approval from the Honors director and the instructor.

Honors Seminars: Qualified Marymount faculty are specifically recruited by the director to develop new and innovative undergraduate seminars for Honors students.These courses demonstrate pedagogical creativity as well as academic rigor. Past examples include EN 220 The Movie or the Book? Narrative Adaptation in Cinema, HU 394 The World of J.R.R. Tolkien, and HU 320 What is Death?

Graduate Courses: As an Honors student, you may petition to take a graduate course for Honors credit. They will need approval of the instructor, the department chair, and the director. This is normally done during the junior or senior year and is especially encouraged for students who intend to pursue graduate study in a particular field. Please see the University’s Graduate Catalog for available courses.
