Honors Program Characteristics

  • The Honors Program offers a fundamentally different approach to teaching, learning and the educational experience.

  • The Honors Program consists of approximately 100 undergraduate students from across all disciplines.

  • The program emphasizes qualitative challenges, not additional work.

  • The program encourages original and critical thinking and creativity, and fosters individuality and independence.

  • Smaller class sizes are provided, with similarly motivated honor students, allowing for close interaction, discussion, and/or debate between faculty and students.

  • Typically, subject matter is introduced that might not be addressed in other courses; students and faculty examine subjects that are interdisciplinary or controversial.

  • To complete the program successfully, a student must attain an overall grade point average of at least a 3.40 with grades of B or better in each honors course.

Special Features
