Most incoming freshmen will follow the requirements for Track 1, the seminar pathway. Track 1 satisfies the majority of the All University Core Curriculum (AUCC) categories. Students with at least 30 AP, IB, or college credits may decide to switch to the Track 2 pathway after their first semester. All incoming Honors freshmen are required to complete an Honors seminar (HONR192) in their first semester at CSU.
Track 1 students complete four Honors seminars (13 credits), two Honors courses in their major (6 credits); a Pre-Thesis class (1 credit); and the Senior Honors Thesis (3 credits). The curriculum meets the AUCC requirements in the following five categories: written communication, arts/humanities (3 of 6 credits), social/behavioral sciences, historical perspectives, and global and cultural awareness.
