»Honors Syllabi

Below are the syllabi for all of Chapman’s Honors courses in PDF format. These provide a general outline of how the course may be taught—but they should not be relied upon for determining the actual textbooks, exam schedule, etc. That information will be unique to each professor and provided to you at the beginning of each course.

**Although some courses fall under multiple categories, course syllabi are presented here under their main category. See Academic Forms and Resources  for additional category information.
