The Honors Program is designed to challenge students and provide opportunities for creative exploration and intellectual development. The program allows motivated students to fulfill fifteen (15) hours of core requirements in a more challenging, interdisciplinary environment and six (6) hours in their junior and senior year. Special provision is made each semester for strong students to individualize their studies. The program further welcomes qualified transfer students who are provided personalized programs.
Furthermore, students will receive the designation of Honors Scholar upon graduation. Upon completion of the program, students will graduate as Honors Program Scholars with special distinction and will be so recognized on all official University transcripts and at their graduation.
The Honors Program is compatible with departmental majors and with other special programs such as the President’s Emerging Leaders Program. Special arrangements may be made with academic departments to provide Honors credit for advanced courses offered in those departments.
