Course Categories

The Honors curriculum requires courses from the following course categories. Please select the course category you would like to explore. (Additional course details, such as classroom locations, can be found in GW's official Schedule of Classes.)

As a reminder, upper-level UHP students may only register for one HONR 2047 or 2053 during their designated enrollment period, unless they have a pre-approval from a Program Manager. During "general enrollment," students may register for an additional upper-level UHP course as seats are available.
