This course will focus on important questions and problems while introducing students to the demands of academic work. Student assignments in the seminars are tied to the six essential General Education outcomes (quantitative literacy, written communication, critical thinking, inquiry and analysis, intercultural knowledge, and ethical reasoning). Honors Progam students will do signature work, synthesizing, analyzing, and applying cumulative knowledge and skills through problem- and/or inquiry-based assignments or projects.

Honors Freshman Writing Intensive (FSWI101)

This intensive writing class will complement the theme of the seminar and help students further develop their writing and research skills. 

Honors Strand English, History, Social Science, and Elective (ENGS30x, HISS30x, SCSS30x, ELES30x)

These courses satisfy the General Education requirements at The Citadel. These courses emphasize an interdisciplinary perspective to develop our students’ skills and dispositions in six essential areas: quantitative literacy, written communication, critical thinking, inquiry and analysis, intercultural knowledge and competence, and ethical reasoning and action.
