University Honors Program Courses

University Honors Program SHAPE Courses

SHAPE courses taught in the University Honors Program format provide students with special, small courses that provide greater access to faculty and a closer encounter with the course material.

  • Courses are 3, 4, or 5 units.
  • UHP courses are capped at 25 students.
  • Letter-graded only. These courses cannot be graded on a standard curve, and we encourage the instructors to experiment with a variety of forms of assessment.
  • Any course that fulfills GE or major requirements can be offered as a UHP course. We encourage faculty to utilize one of their own home department's course codes. If one is not available, please contact UHP.
  • Courses are available only to UHP students.
