Course proposal deadlines and processes

We are open to receiving course proposals or requests to offer repeat honors courses for the spring 2015 semester. The Honors College Curriculum Committee will interview faculty proposing new courses. Notifications will be sent to faculty and respective chairs after the interviews have been held.

The call for Fall 2015–Spring 2016 will be sent by email in June. Contact Diann McCabe at dm14@txstate.edu or 512.245.2266 for more information.
