With over 13,000 courses to choose from, how do you decide what to schedule each semester; whom can you look to for help?
There are a number of resources available for you to take advantage of, including fellow students and the staff of the
Honors & Scholars Center. However, your most knowledgeable resources when it comes to scheduling courses will be
your Honors Advisors. Every Honors student has, at minimum, two Honors Advisors. Generally, you’ll find out who your
Honors Advisors are during your Autumn Semester College Survey course.
College Honors Advisors
Your college Honors Advisor will most likely be a staff person whose
full-time job is to advise students. Talk to your college Honors Advisor about meeting general education curriculum
requirements, or, those courses designed to give you a broad, liberal arts background. They will also advise you on
requirements for graduation from Ohio State with honors in your discipline.
Faculty Honors Advisors
Your departmental Honors Advisor will most likely be a faculty member
whose primary job responsibilities include teaching and conducting research in his or her field of study. Talk to your
faculty Honors Advisor about satisfying those requirements that are specific to your major area of study, which may
include a senior honors thesis.
