This page provides more information for faculty members interested in teaching honors courses for the first time and veteran faculty members in EKU Honors.
Courses are typically taught by faculty as part of their normal teaching load. Faculty members who wish to teach in the honors program should first approach their department chair to secure departmental support for their work in honors instruction.
Each May, EKU Honors hosts a faculty workshop for those interested in teaching honors courses. This event is held on the Tuesday following the spring commencement ceremony.
Interested in proposing a new EKU Honors course?
Stay tuned to this page for information. All proposals will be due via email to David Coleman, executive director of EKU Honors, by a provided due date.
