Honors Program at JWU Denver: Foundational Courses

Honors Thesis Courses

Foundational Courses

All students at JWU must complete introductory and advanced composition courses. 

In Honors Program, these courses (ENG 1024 and ENG 1027) focus on writing and discourse specific to particular fields and disciplines. In these classes, Honors students will engage with various genres that allow for creative, academic, and professional development. The focus on civic discourse also allows students to expand their writing and discussions to areas of political, economic, social, and cultural interests.

(A student may opt out of these courses if they have the appropriate AP, IB, or transfer credits. Please consult your advisor.)
