LEADERSHIP. SCHOLARSHIP. CITIZENSHIP.
Designed around three basic ideals of Leadership, Scholarship and Citizenship, the Honors Program is for students who seek to challenge themselves in exemplary learning experiences such as undergraduate research projects, Honors Courses, independent study and international experiences; who wish to extend and share their knowledge through participation in professional associations and conferences; and who aspire to join other outstanding students and faculty in a wide range of special activities throughout the year, including field trips, social events, and community service projects. Honors activities and courses are designed to enhance the professional dimension of the student’s collegiate experience. The major components of the Honors Program include enhanced academic coursework, professional opportunities within the student’s home college, and Complementary Learning experiences.
