Offered Annually During the Spring Semester
This one-hour course presents an exciting opportunity for ACES James Scholars to earn honors credit during the spring semester. The course features presentations by faculty members and notable experts on various ACES-related topics of current interest, with a focus on the grand challenges facing humanity in the 21st century.
ACES 399 carries one hour of honors credit if it is completed successfully (i.e., with a grade of at least B-). This means that students who enroll in ACES 399 can substitute their honors credit in this course for an Honors Credit Learning Agreement (HCLA).
ACES 399 is being offered again in spring 2020, taught by Dr. Jason Emmert, a longtime friend and supporter of honors programming in the College of ACES. Class meetings (on Wednesdays from 3:00-3:50 PM) began on January 22, 2020 (classroom TBD). Enrollment in ACES 399 is limited to the first 25 ACES James Scholars who sign up for it online via UI-Integrate Self-Service.
Please feel free to contact Rob Chappell for more information.
