College of Arts and Sciences | Honors Program


THE HONORS PROGRAM offers intensified study for selected students. Emphasis is on the acquisition of knowledge and the comprehension of ideas. Honors study includes courses in general education and in specialized departmental areas.

Work in general education consists of courses in English composition, literature, and natural and social sciences during the freshman year and seminars during the sophomore and junior years.

In the student’s area of specialization, honors study allows for flexibility with opportunities for independent study through supervised reading in the sophomore and junior years and directed research in the senior year.
