 Students who have completed their Honors College Core requirements may apply to carry out additional honors course work through the Honors Fellows ProgramThe choice to be an Honors Fellow can enhance your honors experience in many ways. It is purely voluntary; only a small percentage of honors students will meet the challenge.

Honors Fellows Projects are as unique as the individual students who pursue them. The types of work that could be proposed include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Independent research project and paper of significant depth
• Performance recital
• Ongoing research with professors, culminating in senior thesis
• Service learning project
• Original creative work(s): art, music, prose, or poetry

Honors Fellows opt for four IHP classes. They graduate with a total of 30 IHP credits on their transcript

Some options for earning IHP credits:

• Take all four theme area classes in IHP (instead of choosing just two).
• Pass courses designated as "honors" within your major (Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, and Philosophy all offer honors classes, for example).
• Study abroad and earn IHP credit for classes at international study centers.
• Participate in Duquesne's annual Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium as you conduct research in a Duquesne University class.
• Earn IHP credit for summer internships or work experience.
• Enroll in IHP 300, Directed Readings, with a professor in your major mentoring your progress.
• Complete IHP 450, Honors Senior Project.
