University Honors College Curriculum
In addition to the Honors Core Program, students can elect a curricular emphasis within the Honors Curriculum. For students interested in the sciences and engineering, the Natural and Complex Systems (NCS) Program is an excellent choice. For students interested in Alaskan History and Politics, as well as leadership, the Forty-Ninth State Fellows Program provides invaluable opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom.
The Natural and Complex Systems (NCS) Program includes additional courses that focus on scientific, research-based projects that integrate student work across the Natural, Physical, Engineering, Mathematical, and Computer Sciences. This option is open to honors students in all disciplines but is targeted particularly toward students in science-oriented degrees. Honors students may take courses in the NCS Program if they meet the course prerequisites.
The Forty-Ninth State Fellows Program includes additional curriculum in democratic institutions and leadership. Focusing on politics, history, and Alaska, it consists of selected courses, weekly tutorials, and extracurricular activities. Note: Admissions for the 2012-2013 academic year have been suspended.
