Class Descriptions

Literature: Becoming a better reader of literature makes you a better interpreter in general, making you aware of how imagery, musicality, figures of speech work their magic. We will read texts the Honors College way!

Biology: From genetics to physiology, the many branches of biology have much to tell us about what the human body is made up of, how it works, and how it is affected by what we eat, the air we breathe, and every other aspect of the world around us. Students will learn how important biology is to our everyday lives.

Creative Writing: Building on the energetic work done in the literature class, we will make the turn from being good readers to creative writers, experimenting with various literary forms and increasing our confidence with some fun writing exercises.

Engineering: Students will be introduced to basic principles in engineering, including demonstrations based on current research activities at the University of Houston. There will be opportunities for hands-on construction of simple communications systems that are a part of today’s wireless environment.
