A close-knit community, honors students enjoy thought-provoking seminars, small classes, leadership opportunities, and community service experiences that are valuable for career direction or graduate school.
In the first two years, honors students participate in discussion-based, one-credit seminars. Each interdisciplinary seminar is team-taught by faculty providing students with unique perspectives from academic areas as diverse as biology, history, legal studies, or psychology.
In their junior and senior years, students pursue their academic interests through special projects or a thesis. Working one-on-one with their advisor/faculty mentor, students research, write and present on a topic of their choice.
I would absolutely recommend the Honors Program to new incoming students. This opportunity allows you to really grow on an intellectual level. You get to hear so many different opinions from different people and majors and it really makes you think on a global scale. It is just a fun opportunity that gives so much room for personal and intellectual growth." - Kenna Tyrrell, Honors Program Member
