Honors Program

The Honors Program has a long history of providing intellectual and creative excitement as well as academic challenge.

Why Honors?

Since its inception in 1965, the Honors Program has been dedicated to achieving its goals through team taught interdisciplinary courses.

It is in a team-teaching setting that faculty and students work together to share insights and examine perspectives to gain new understandings and interests, engage in dialog on multiple points of view, analyze ideas critically, and practice creative and unconventional thinking. We strive to challenge, motivate and support students to put forth their best efforts in pursuit of their undergraduate study and to enrich their university experience through active learning and engagement with the academic experience.

The Honors Program provides students an intellectually challenging, supportive environment that features interdisciplinary active learning and a dynamic curriculum with academic rigor.

As an alternative liberal education program, the Honors Program offers students the opportunity to engage in and develop an appreciation of multiple perspectives and to dialog with faculty from a variety of academic disciplines and other students on contrasting viewpoints of issues.
