Mission Statement

To engage the intellectual curiosity of students though an experience in interdisciplinary coursework, internal course enrichment, external engagement with the broader community, field trip experiences, dedicated seminars and conference opportunities.
  • Honors Program Emphasis:
    Experiential and service learning and encouraging critical thinking within the individual. The classes will be a mixture of full class sections that are designated as honors alongside subsections within non-honors classes. The student in these subsections would be asked to create an agreement with the professor stating that they understand what they would be required of them beyond their non-honors enrolled peers.

  • Honors Program Student Community:
    All students who take an Honors class will be part of an Honors Program Student Community, a group with voluntary participation in various activities, possibly including special speakers, conference participation and other enriching experiences.

  • Honors Degree Designation:
    Students who attain a letter grade of B or higher in at least 15 Honors-designated credit hours will have an Honors degree conferred upon them at graduation. Students who acquire less than 15 Honors-designated hours will still have those credits appear on their transcript, even without the Honors degree.
