By-Contract Sections

An honors-by-contract section is a regular section of a course in which the Honors@Bucks student enters into a private contract with the instructor to engage in advanced studies appropriate for honors-level work.  Honors contracts are facilitated by the Honors@Bucks coordinator and are forged at the very start of the semester, before the drop-add period ends. 

Honors@Bucks students must complete at least one dedicated-honors course before beginning by-contract work. 

If you're a current Honors@Bucks student interested in arranging contracts for an upcoming semester, please contact Dr. Stephen doCarmo, Honors@Bucks program coordinator.
