Courses vary according to the program of study each student chooses.  Generally, however, students take two Honors courses each semester during their first two years at Fairmont State.  At minimum, they need 25 to 27 credit hours in Honors courses to complete the Honors Program; most of the Honors courses also satisfy the university’s General Studies requirements. Students will also complete an Honors Senior Project in their field of study.
