Quality rather than quantity separates Honors courses from non-Honors courses. The goal is to encourage the student to extract more intellectual value out of course content and work rather than simply to cover more material or assign more.

As such, teaching an Honors course presents a unique opportunity to bring out the best in both the students and the faculty.
