Interdisciplinary Honors Minor



Augustana’s interdisciplinary honors minor is an opportunity for students to earn a minor in intense, interdisciplinary, connected learning. Though the minor offers no specific disciplinary or pre-professional experience—instead, it offers many such experiences—future graduate schools and employers will regard this minor as evidence of special academic curiosity and dedication.

Eligible students must apply and interview for this opportunity. Those who apply and are accepted for Honors study as high school students and who complete the First Year Honors sequence (FYH) are eligible, as are students who attain a B+ or higher after a semester in the First Year Inquiry (FYI) sequences and who respond to an invitation to apply and are accepted. (Equivalent transfer courses will also be considered.)

The minor consists of four 4-credit courses plus a capstone. Each of the four courses also fulfills certain learning perspectives required to graduate. The final capstone may be tied to a student’s Senior Inquiry project in the major if the capstone project is interdisciplinary and approved by the student’s major department.

The program advisor is Director of Honors Programs Dr. Megan Havard-Rockwell,
