Honors Tutorial College students are not required to take general education courses, so they have the ability to customize much of their curriculum to meet their individual academic interests and career goals. Students may also take tutorials in disciplines outside of their program of study, as well as graduate courses. The Honors Tutorial College requires its students to engage in undergraduate research, and it offers various ways to help them do so. Research is possible within all academic disciplines, and the college supports research and creative activity through Research Apprenticeships, the Herbert L. Baer Interdisciplinary Research Prize, the Provost’s Undergraduate Research Fund, and the HTC Research & Travel Fund. Additionally, the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards, housed in HTC, also advises students applying for prestigious scholarships.
