HONR.3200 Seminars

HONR.3200 courses default as free electives. HONR.3200 may potentially satisfy an Arts & Humanities (AH) or Social Science (SS) requirement depending on the nature of the course, but students will need to receive an exception from UML's Core Curriculum coordinator, Kevin Petersen. 

Students interested in petitioning for an HONR.3200 course to count as either an AH or SS core requirement should contact the Honors College Coordinator of Success and Communications, Megan Hadley by emailing to initiate the petition process.
