Honors assignments

Some courses have optional honors assignments you can complete for special recognition in the course.

Honors assignments:

  • Are not required to get a Course Certificate
  • Do not affect your grade in the course
  • Include extra content related to the course
  • Are not included in every course

If you complete all honors assignments in a course, your Course Certificate will include a special Honors Recognition. If you don't get a Course Certificate, your Accomplishments page will show that you completed a course with Honors.

To get an Honors Recognition, you need to:

  • Pay for a Course Certificate in that course
  • Earn a Course Certificate by completing and passing all required assignments
  • Complete and pass all honors assignments

Honors assignments in degree courses

If you are taking a Coursera course as part of a degree, you need to complete all honors assignments in that course.
