About CURO Research Courses:
These three sequential courses (4960H, 4970H & 4980H) offer all students an opportunity to earn 4000-level, Honors course credit for individual research pursued under the direction of a faculty mentor.
CURO research courses can satisfy degree program requirements and count towards Honors Program graduation requirements.
CURO recommends that students consult with their academic advisor to best determine how the course will advance their degree program.
All students--regardless of major, year, or GPA--may pursue these courses.
Students must have completed 15 (residence) credit hours prior to applying for one of these courses. Honors students, however, are allowed to enroll in a CURO course during their first semester.
Students pursuing a CURO research course must have a faculty mentor who will direct the research and mentor the student. Faculty mentors will be either an Associate Professor, Assistant Professor or Professor.
Completing and Submitting the Course Application
CURO Research Courses are only available during Fall, Spring, Summer Through, and Summer Extended Sessions. Applications are due by the third day of drop/add during the semester for which the student is applying. Please note that departmental deadlines may not match CURO deadlines.
*HONS prefixed courses do not require the signature of an undergraduate coordinator.
Questions or concerns about this process should be directed to Ms. Kerrie Bethel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-542-5871.
On the application, students are required to provide a four letter course prefix (e.g. BIOL, ENGL, HIST...). Not all academic departments offer all CURO courses. Please consult the UGA Bulletin to determine if a department offers these courses.
Course Credit Hours
On the application, students are required to list the course credit hours. Each academic department offering CURO courses will set the total credit hours. Please consult the UGA Bulletin to determine the correct credit hours for the course.
Students are encouraged to begin with 4960H*. Doing so allows them to continue with 4970H and 4980H in successive semesters. This progression also reflects a gradual increase in academic rigor.
*if available. If not, begin with the earliest numerical CURO research course.
