Madison College Honors Program


The Madison College Honors Program is a college-wide, project-based program. Qualified students work with an honors supervising faculty member over the course of a semester to develop an honors project within the faculty member’s discipline. The student and faculty member complete an Honors Program Learning Contract and determine the learning objectives, meeting schedule, required resources and criteria for grading the honors project. Faculty and students from more than 75 programs, departments and disciplines across the College participate in the Honors Program. Students from all Madison, Fort Atkinson, Portage, Reedsburg and Watertown campuses, as well as online students, can participate. The Madison College Honors Program is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council and the Upper Midwest Regional Honors Council.

  • Getting Started
    1. Review the Honors Program website.

    2. Check Important Dates to make sure that you are aware of deadlines for enrollment, Material Scholarships, and the Honors Program Competition.

    3. Contact a full-time or part-time faculty member whose class you have taken or are currently taking to ask if he or she is willing to supervise your Honors Project.  All faculty members who have completed the Honors Faculty Workshop qualify as Honors Supervising Faculty Members.  A list of trained Madison College faculty members can be found under Programs & Faculty.

    4. Contact the Honors Program Director to notify her of your interest in participating in the Honors Program:

    5. Work with your Honors Supervising Faculty Member to develop an Honors Project.  You may enroll in 2 or 3 credits for each Honors Project.  One credit = 51 hours of work.

    6. Work with your Honors Supervising Faculty Member to complete the Honors Project Learning Contract. Download and print the completed Learning Contract. All Contracts submitted must be typed using this template. Do not alter the format of this form.

    7. Submit the completed and signed Honors Project Learning Contract to the Administrative Coordinator of the School in which the Project is being conducted.  This action enrolls you in the Honors Project and Honors Program.  Madison College will include the 2 or 3 credits for the Honors Project on your tuition bill. Click here to see current tuition rates.  Honors Project credits costs the same as your other Madison College degree credits. Depending on your circumstances, Financial Aid and Veterans Benefits may cover the costs of tuition.

    8. Institutional Review Board:  Research involving Human Subjects must follow a semester in which a Literature Review Honors Project was conducted on the topic. In the semester, the Honors Project involves research with human subjects, then check this box on the Learning Contract.  In addition, submit the following material with the Learning Contract a) Honors Faculty Research Experience Checklist, b) Informed Consent Form and c) fully developed survey (if conducting survey research).  All materials for IRB submission must first be submitted to the Honors Program Director for approval by the Honors Advisory Committee.  The Honors Program Director will then forward the materials to the IRB Committee. Under no circumstance may a student or faculty member begin contacting subjects or collecting data until full approval from both the Honors Advisory Committee and IRB is received. 

    9. If the Honors Project involves animal research, the Honors Supervising Faculty Member should contact the Honors Program Director for additional information and instructions prior to submitting the Learning Contract.

    10. The Honors Program Director will submit your Learning Contract to the Honors Advisory Committee for review and approval.  You will receive one of three types of feedback from the Honors Advisory Committee:

      • Approved. If you are approved you may begin work on your honors project.

      • Approved with Clarification. If you receive feedback that you are Approved with Clarification, you must clear up something in the Learning Contract that is causing confusion. We may need to go back-and-forth with e-mails as we clear up the confusion. Once the clarifications meet with the Committee’s satisfaction then you will receive an e-mail approving your project.

      • Modify and Resubmit. If you receive feedback that you must Modify and Resubmit, then it may take several e-mails or a meeting with the Honors Program Director to work through a bigger structural problem or several points of confusion. The Revised Learning Contract is then voted on again by the Honors Advisory Committee. You will receive an e-mail with the Committee’s         decision to either approve or continue to iron out the problems. The Honors Director will continue to work with you and your faculty member until your Honors Project is approved or modified into a more feasible or clear project.

        If the Honors Advisory Committee has questions about your Project, you or your Honors Supervisory Faculty member are expected to respond in a timely manner. Delays in providing the requested information to the Committee will cause delays in the start of your Project.

    11. When your Honors Project is approved, the Honors Advisory Committee will send you and your Honors Supervisory Faculty member an e-mail. You may then start work on your Honors Project.

    12. Once your Honors Project is approved, you will meet weekly with your Honors Supervising Faculty Member throughout the semester as you work on your Honors Project.  At the end of the semester, your Faculty Supervisor will submit a final grade using the A – F grading scale.

    13. You may need to purchase materials to complete your Honors Project. An Honors Project Materials Scholarship is available to help defray these costs. Materials Scholarship awards range up to $150 per honors project. Download and complete the Materials Scholarship Application form.

    14. The Honors Program Competition is held at the end of each semester. Students give a brief presentation of their Honors Project to a panel of judges that include faculty, staff, and administrators from across Madison College.  The first, second, and third place winners receive a trophy, cash prize, and an all-expense paid trip to present their Honors Project at the next Upper Midwest Regional Honors Council Conference.

    15. Honors Project—Incomplete.  If you are not able to complete your Honors Project by the end of the semester, it may be possible for you to receive an Incomplete.  Please discuss this with your Honors Supervising Faculty Member.

    16. Withdrawing from the Honors Project.  If you must withdraw from the Honors Project, you will need to notify your Honors Supervising Faculty Member by e-mail.  Your Supervisor will then forward your e-mail to the Honors Program Director and the Administrative Coordinator of your School to officially drop you from the Honors Project.  You are not officially dropped until you both receive a confirmation e-mail from the Administrative Coordinator of your School.  Expect this process to take several days.  Withdrawing from an Honors Project is governed by the same refund policies that apply to other courses at Madison College.

    17. At the end of the semester, an Honors Program Assessment Survey will be e-mailed to you and your Honors Supervising Faculty Member.  It is important that you both complete the survey—this is one of the best ways for us to get feedback and suggestions to make the Honors Program even better!

    18. Successful Completion of the Honors Program.  Honors Students who successfully complete 4 – 6 Honors Project credits (2 or 3 Projects) with a minimum AB average will receive a medallion at graduation or transfer.  If you meet these requirements, please send an e-mail at the beginning of your last semester to the Honors Program Director indicating that you are graduating or transferring and have earned a medallion.  Medallions will be awarded at the Honors Competition.  If you will be participating in the Madison College graduation ceremony, the Honors Medallion should be worn during the ceremony.                 

  • Honors Project

    There are several different types of projects that you may develop into an honors project. Options are dependent upon the subject area of the faculty member with whom you choose to work.

    The details of each honors project are worked out by you and your honors supervising faculty member when you complete the Honors Program Learning Contract. Each honors project is worth two or three credits. Each credit is worth 51 hours of work. Work may include meetings, research, reading, writing, designing, building, recording, practicing and/or presentations. Over one semester, you'll produce an academically rigorous body of work that allows you to explore a more in-depth topic in your faculty member’s discipline. You may present your completed honors project at the Honors Competition at the end of the semester. The honors project is graded by the supervising honors faculty member at the end of the semester.

    Honors project examples include:

    • Composing new music
    • Conducting research
    • Constructing a website
    • Creating artwork
    • Designing a building
    • Developing a business plan
    • Developing a curriculum project
    • Developing a marketing campaign
    • Developing new mobile apps
    • Inventing a new product or process
    • Planning a major fundraising event
    • Writing a book
    • Writing a literature review

     

    Developmental and accelerated courses, internships, service learning, study abroad, and experiential learning do not qualify as an honors project. Honors projects are expected to provide challenging learning opportunities for academically outstanding students that will enhance student achievement and success. You and your supervising faculty member are encouraged to be as creative as possible when constructing these intellectually rigorous learning experiences.

    Additional Information

    • You may enroll in more than one honors project within a single semester, but keep in mind that each honors credit is equal to 51 hours of work. You may also enroll in projects in more than one discipline.

    • Your honors project can span across multiple semesters as long as your work each semester results in a product that can be graded as a stand-alone section of the larger project.

    • You are able to do a large project with another student as long as both students qualify for the honors program and the honors supervising faculty member agrees and your individual work on the honors project is easily identifiable.

    • You can do a single honors project for at least two credits that cuts across more than one discipline. Have one faculty member supervise one credit in their discipline and the other faculty member supervise one or two credits in their discipline in the same project. You will need permission from the Honors Program director.

    • If you are not able to complete your honors project by the end of the semester, it may be possible for you to receive an incomplete. Please discuss this with your honors supervising faculty member.

    Withdrawing from an Honors Project

    If you must withdraw from the honors project, you must notify your honors supervising faculty member by email. The faculty member will then forward your email to the Honors Program director and the administrative coordinator of your school to officially drop you from the honors project. You're not officially dropped until you receive a confirmation email from the administrative coordinator of your School. Withdrawing from an honors project is governed by the same refund policies that apply to other courses at Madison College.

    As part of the Madison College Honors Program, an Honors Competition is held at the end of the fall and spring semester. Students present their honors projects to members of the Madison College community and a panel of judges. Friends and family are welcome to attend.  

    The panel of judges include faculty, staff, and administrators from across Madison College. The first, second and third place winners receive an award and financial support to present their honors project at the next Upper Midwest Regional Honors Council Conference.

HONORS TUITION AND FINANCIAL AID

Tuition is charged based on the number of honors project credits indicated on your Honors Program Learning Contract. The tuition cost is the same as for a regular (10- or 20-code) course credit at Madison College. If you have electives in your program or are a Liberal Arts Transfer student you may count honors credits toward your financial aid total.

To determine the tuition amount, multiply the number of honors project credits you plan to take by the 10- or 20-code rate per credit. Check out the current 10- and 20-code tuition rates.

If you are an international student, a veteran, or covered by the federal or state GI bill, please review this important information about Financial Aid for International Students and Veterans.
