学生的研究在太浩湖

Honors students work closely with faculty mentors to conduct innovative, student-directed research each semester in their classes. They have the opportunity to showcase their scholarship at the annual SNU 荣誉 Program Symposium, as well as at national undergraduate research conferences such as the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), which is the country’s largest and most diverse conference for undergraduate scholarship across disciplines. 荣誉 students serve as models for academic excellence at SNU, and are actively engaged in all facets of campus life, in and out of the classroom.

程序组件

荣誉 students conduct in-depth study in their areas of interest, and apply and communicate their understanding in the form of original research:

  • 荣誉课程: students complete a minimum of four self-selected, regularly offered courses as “荣誉课程” by writing additional papers, developing a related project, or meeting other terms as specified in a contract with the instructor of the courses.
  • 座谈会课程: each semester honors students register for a 1 credit “荣誉课程研讨会” where they all attend multidisciplinary, on-campus events as a group over the course of the semester.
  • 委员会: honors students are expected to serve on an 荣誉 Program committee for the semester, which may include writing blog entries about pertinent honors events and on-campus activities, revising the honors website, or creating fundraising activities for future conferences, symposia, and social events.
优等生:
  • are identified as such on their transcripts and graduation program, and have enhanced eligibility to become their class Valedictorian (one of SNU’s greatest academic honors!).
  • have access to increased scholarship opportunities.
  • enjoy a variety of program activities such as parties and field trips.
  • 有资格参加 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), where they network with other 荣誉 students from the country, make professional connections, and showcase their work.
