06002/Honors Scholars Program (UDHP)

The Temple University Honors Program offers Honors students the opportunity to engage in intellectually stimulating and challenging course work throughout their undergraduate career. The Honors Scholars Program, designed for advanced undergraduates with at least junior-level standing, requires a minimum of six upper division Honors courses (minimum of 18 hours), including an advanced research theory or practice course and an honors thesis, and leads to the “Honors Scholar” designation on the Temple transcript. A listing of Honors courses and their non-Honors equivalencies can be found at the end of the “Course Descriptions” booklet. Undergraduate Honors courses contain a 9 as the second character of the course number and have "HONORS" as part of the title. (The former Honors course number, used prior to the Summer 2007 semester, began with an “H”.) The Honors Program produces its own course guide each semester. Students can obtain a copy of the Honors course guide and consult with an Honors advisor in Tuttleman Learning Center, Room 204. Questions related to Honors courses fulfilling Honors Scholars Program requirements should be addressed to an Honors advisor (215-204-0710).
