Honors Options

Honors Options allow Honors students to earn Honors credit in 300- and 400-level non-Honors courses at Drexel. A student works with their professor to design additional research, writing, or creative project worthy of Honors credit. Honors Options enrich and expand the student’s depth of knowledge while encouraging collaboration and exploration beyond the standard coursework.

Occasionally, we receive questions about what is or is not Honors-worthy. We encourage instructors to review the Honors-Worthy Checklist for a better picture of the scope and expectation surrounding an Honors-worthy project.
