Honors Research Seminars (UGS 200H)

These Honors seminars are designed particularly for first- and second-year Honors College students and provide an opportunity to engage in research in close association with MSU faculty members. The seminars are listed as UGS 200H in the Schedule of Courses. Students admitted to the Honors College through the Campus Admissions process in Spring 2020 can submit an override request to enroll in an Honors Research Seminar.

Among the benefits of these seminars:

  • Seminars offer opportunities for hands-on work on cutting-edge research projects, under the supervision of MSU faculty members. Students who gain this experience are well situated to find other research opportunities in future.
  • Seminars are small and offer the opportunity to work with interesting students from a wide variety of majors.
  • Every seminar offers the opportunity to present at the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum in April. Many seminars also offer presentation and publication opportunities in other forums, both inside and outside the university.
  • Seminars count as one Honors experience and, with the approval of an Honors College Academic Specialist/Advisor, may count toward Integrative Studies requirements for Honors College members.

Important note: 

  • The 3 credits and 1 Honors experience earned by this experience only apply to the Fall semester schedule; students will not see UGS 200H on their Spring schedule even though they will still be regularly engaging with their faculty & classmates throughout the Spring semester
