The Honors College is a diverse living and learning community of gifted scholars, experienced advisors and committed faculty for the student who craves a challenge and wishes to do more with his/her education. We provide the experience of a small liberal arts college backed by the intellectual resources of a major research university to deliver a dynamic curriculum that moves far beyond the classroom.
The curriculum expands across a student’s undergraduate career. In the first year, Honors Colloquium provides a venue for service learning and civic engagement while Honors seminars provide a small, intimate setting for meaningful faculty-student interaction and rich discussion. As students are encouraged to engage in rigorous coursework within and outside of their major and engage in research, internships, and study abroad. This curriculum is meant to provide students with transformative experiences that will hopefully lead them to future career aspirations.
