Program Overview

教师教学

荣誉课程至少包括八个学期的工作学分,这实际上是大三和高年级工作的一半。该计划由至少两个部门选择的四个单独的准备工作组成。大四结束时,由外部考官以书面形式和口头形式评估准备工作。提出的准备工作可能基于1)两个学分的学分,例如两个学分的研讨会,论文或研究项目;或2)由两个学分研讨会或其同等学历以及先决条件单位(通常是高级课程)组成的三项学分;或3)单一学分论文或高级课程工作单位,该论文与另一个课程配对,或者是该领域的实质性先前工作的高潮。通常,学生的荣誉计划在专业中包含三个准备工作,尽管跨学科计划也可以进行。该计划还可以包括“高级荣誉研究”,该研究旨在增强,并在适当的情况下整合大专业和未成年人的准备工作或正在进行的准备工作。

候选人是根据教师在课程工作中的先前表现以及教师对他们承担荣誉工作责任的能力的评估的基础上选择的。荣誉候选人在大二或大三时提出了一项荣誉研究计划。该提案必须由其主要和次要部门,特殊或跨学科的集中度或计划批准。参加荣誉计划是唯一获得Swarthmore学位的途径。

评估荣誉工作

Swarthmore faculty grade all of the specific honors courses and/or seminars taken as honors preparations, but do not grade theses or other original work. At the end of their senior year, honors candidates face visiting examiners from other institutions who, through their own written and oral examinations, have the sole responsibility for assessing the student's overall level of honors as it appears on their final transcript. The visiting examiners give both written and oral examinations for course and seminar preparations and oral examinations for theses and other original work. An honors candidate's performance in all the examinations is the basis for decision by the visiting examiners whether or not the student should receive a degree with honors, and for assignment by the visiting examiners of an overall level—honors, high honors, or highest honors—which appears on the academic record.

研讨会方法

尽管越来越多的学生通过课程,独立的研究项目和论文组合做出荣誉准备,但研讨会(通常不超过八名学生的课程)仍然是该计划的核心特征。在每周三个小时或更长时间的每周会议中,学生对阅读分配的材料,准备要在小组面前介绍的论文以及领导讨论的责任承担同等责任。
