Honors Tutorials begin in your sophomore year. There are two types: the Traditional Tutorial and the Research Tutorial. The traditional undergraduate tutorial, developed in the Middle Ages at Oxford and Cambridge, is an intimate and intense learning experience.
Traditional Tutorials consist of one to three students meeting once a week over an eight-week period with a professor on a specialized topic. The topic need not be in your major. During each one- to two-hour meeting, you are expected to have completed readings from an agreed-upon list and to have produced a short response paper, which you will read and receive feedback.
