Honors Program

The Honors Program invites applications from motivated, intellectually curious students eager to better themselves and the world around them. The Program will complement any field of study, and our courses and projects are designed to promote interdisciplinary skills applicable to a variety of contexts.  

Some people hesitate to apply to the Honors Program because they have some sense that Honors students must be “perfect,” but none of our students, staff, or faculty are perfect. All are human and fallible, but all are also willing to challenge themselves, to discuss important and exciting subjects with other people, and to become the campus experts on subjects of their choosing, under the mentorship of faculty members and other colleagues.

In short, we seek to learn from each other—and from our own mistakes—as we increase our understanding of the world around us and the ways in which we can grow as scholars and as citizens.

Benefits of taking part in the Honors Program include:

  • Unique and challenging courses
  • Social, conference, and service activities
  • Opportunities to develop academic and personal strengths
  • Personalized guidance in identifying and addressing challenges
  • Priority registration and scholarship consideration
