Honors Contracts

Students who cannot find an All-Honors or Honors Enrichment Component class that fits their schedule and/or degree program and/or wish to engage in scholarly research have the option to conduct an independent study project called an Honors Contract Project (HCP) with a professor from a course in which they are currently enrolled. The HCP is done in addition to regular coursework and is recommended only for students who have strong time management skills and seek the challenge of working in a one-to-one relationship with a professor.

The HCP encourages students to investigate areas of knowledge and traditions of inquiry that are not previously part of the student's experience. A completed HCP usually results in a typed paper that contains a minimum of 1,200 words using Times New Roman, 12-point font, with documentation appropriate to the discipline, or a visual project with a written summary of the project and learning outcomes. An HCP is initiated by filing an HCP Form, available in the Honors House in M377 or by clicking here.

Students must secure the signature of the Honors Academic Liaison from the appropriate department in order to file the form.

The deadline for submitting an HCP is the last day of the sixth week of the fall or spring term. Upon successful completion of the HCP, deemed as earning a grade of B+ or higher as judged by the professor and the Honors Academic Liaison from the appropriate department, and approved by the Honors Contract Advisory committee, an Honors notation will be added to the course on the college transcript.

All HCPs will automatically be submitted to the editor of the Honors Journal Distinctions for possible publication.

NOTE: An Honors Contract Workshop will be conducted at the start of each term for students considering such an option. Please contact the Honors House staff (Room M377, 718-368-5365) for the dates of the workshop. Samples of outstanding HCPs may also be viewed in the Honors House.
