During sophomore year, students may continue to take Honors seminars for additional USU Breadth credit. They may also apply for admission to HONR 3070, a year-long, interdisciplinary “Think Tank” that satisfies both of USU’s General Education Depth requirements. Team-taught by faculty and admitting students from different disciplines, these courses join scholars with community leaders in seeking creative solutions to local challenges. Each class spends one semester researching and discussing the topic and the other developing a concrete plan of action. Topics might range from reducing valley air pollution to devising physical and aesthetic improvements in area senior centers to forging links between the arts and sciences in local elementary schools. Sophomores continue to attend at least three co-curricular activities per year and enjoy special Honors opportunities to interact with faculty and visitors on campus.
