The honors program challenges and supports student learning through a series of specially designed seminars. Each seminar offers a unique educational experience, enabling students to work with some of the finest faculty members on campus in a small class setting. Honors students take four seminars, ideally within their freshman and sophomore years, which fulfill part of the university’s general education requirements. We offer courses in the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. Students are also encouraged to participate in the honors colloquium and to take part in the many organized learning experiences outside of the classroom.
