Brock Scholars Seminars

The Brock Scholars curriculum is a 34 to 37-hour sequence of specially designed and enhanced seminar courses that fulfill all  of the student's general education course requirements except mathematics and laboratory science.  The gen. ed. replacement nature of our curriculum allows students from any academic major to participate in the program without taking extra courses.  These courses in the humanities, the fine arts, cultural perspectives, the history of science, and the social sciences, culminate in a senior-year departmental honors  project.               

The course prefix for these courses is UHON.  For more information the Brock Scholars curriculum and general education see the link appropriate to your catalog year:  Fall 2014 and Later Catalog  or  Catalog Year Prior to Fall 2014. 

Advanced Placement (AP) credit does not replace any required Brock Seminar, but is accepted by the University and awarded appropriate credit toward the required number of hours for a degree. For information about specific equivalencies, contact the Records Office.
