Take the challenge and move beyond the traditional college education and into a stimulating world of learning, thinking, research, and creativity. The Honors Program is built around your interests and immerses you in an exciting learning community. Plus, you can combine Honors with any major on campus, or create your own program of study.
The Defining Difference
Stimulating Classes: The most important reason for joining the Honors Program is the value of the classes themselves. Our small classes will bring you in close contact with exciting faculty and other bright students just like you.
Flexibility: Honors Program requirements substitute for the Essential Studies requirements, which enables you to explore other subjects of interest and design your own program of study.
Advisement: Honors faculty will work closely with you to help you meet your personal education goals.
Accomplishment: You'll graduate with solid evidence of real accomplishment, demonstrated both in the Honors seal on the diploma and transcript, and in your thesis, a substantial independent project that showcases your abilities to prospective employers and graduate schools.
"The Honors Program has had a profound influence on my university experience. The classes and faculty shaped me into the student, young professional, and community member that I am today." - Beatrice Hill, Senior, Honors student
