Contracts & Independent Study

Course Contract

Contracts enable UHP students to earn Honors credit for classes that do not carry such credit, typically courses in their major, minor, or required for their plan of study. The work done to fulfill the contract must be consistent with the UHP goal of fostering its members’ intellectual development by emphasizing problem-solving, critical thinking, active learning and creativity as well as by encouraging innovative approaches to familiar ideas and vexing problems.

Contracts are due October 20th  for fall 2017 and February 23th  spring 2018.

 

Independent Study

Independent study enables students to explore topics of their own interests or to do research. In each case, a plan is developed in concert with a professor and submitted for approval by the UHP director.
