The Merrimack Honors Program strives to support the course needs of students from every major in the college. We therefore offer four types of honors courses.
Types of Honors Classes
First, Merrimack Honors offers Honors sections of the three courses that every student at Merrimack must take: Introduction to Philosophy, a 100-level RTS (Religious & Theological Studies), and College Writing. A second group of Honors courses helps students satisfy core area requirements in the liberal arts, social sciences, math, and science. These include Honors sections in psychology, economics, business, education, environmental studies, writing and rhetoric, calculus, and physics (specific courses vary by semester). Traditionally, we offer a Honors STEM, Social Science, Honors Arts and Literature every semester. From time to time we offer various introductory courses such as: BUS1100 and HSC1122. Third, students may with the approval of their professor earn honors credit in a non-Honors course by completing additional research or a special project called Honors Contract. This allows the student to get Honors credit for upper-level courses in their major.
Please note that these classes are subject to change. The most up to date classes will be on MyMack.
