Changes to Curriculum

Please be aware that the DHC has desgined a new curriculum outline as of  2020. The most current course requirements can be found on this page, as well as pre-2020 requirements and equivalencies. 

Because several DHC courses have been restructured with fewer credits, students who began in the DHC prior to 2020 may find that the total credit count for their honors plan is now lower. We remind you that students must complete at least 180 credits to graduate from CWU.

Don't hesitate to reach out to honors advisor Chris Denison or DHC peer advisors if you have any questions about your course requirements.
