Honors courses


In Honors, this is what lit class looks like: Literature + Science 

Pitt Honors courses cut across boundaries. 

Experience topics in completely new ways: frame things in deeper historical context, read primary sources to draw conclusions for yourself, or examine your career through your favorite TV show. Every small-group course challenges you to reshape your thinking, with more hands-on discovery and in-depth discussion. 

Featured courses, Fall 2019: 

Rise of Islam

Other intriguing courses (you can take right now): 

Critiques of Capitalism
PHIL 1320 - Take a deep dive into some of the prominent controversies and debates around capitalism: property, commodification, and ultimately, is it even compatible with a just society? None of these issues are simple to unpack, and we’ll challenge the assumptions on both sides of these debates.

Civil Rights Movement
HIST 1632 - Look more critically at the ways we remember (and misremember) this critical point in history. Challenge the popular myths, misrepresentations, and omissions about the Civil Rights Movement, and meet the lesser-known heroes from the front lines.

Holocaust in Context
HIST 1048 - Mass violence makes us wonder: How could this happen? History gives us answers. Unpack the circumstances that enabled a terrifyingly swift descent into the most radical case of genocide in modern times.
