SPECIAL NOTE TO SCHOLARS WHO ENTERED
HONORS COLLEGE IN OR AFTER FALL OF 2011
To meet requirements of the Thomas F. Freeman Honors College, you must incorporate
Honors College themes into four of the courses that you take in junior or senior year, that are on your program guide, and that your major requires.
The Thomas F. Freeman Honors College calls them Proposal Courses.
To understand the policies that govern these courses, hold one conversation with
your Honors College advisor. To understand the incorporation of a theme in any one
of your courses, hold another conversation with the instructor for the course.
In this crucial conversation, the instructor will be in the “driver’s seat.”
Then you do the following: (a) the instructor fills out the Course Proposals form,
and you and the instructor sign the form; (b) you submit the form for approval by
the Dean in the Honors College; (c) you take the course and do the work that incorporates
the theme; and (d) you receive a grade for the course at the end of the course.
Please note that at the end of your studies at Texas Southern University you will
receive Honors College certification only, among other things, if you have taken and passed these four Proposal Courses.
Make sure you hold the conversations with your Honors College advisor and with the
instructor(s) for your Proposal Course(s) very early. You really should do so before
the beginnings of the semesters in which you register for the Proposal Courses.
