About the Honors Program

The Honors Program is designed to serve the needs and interests of students who seek a stimulating academic experience and formal recognition for completing a challenging program.  We invite applications from intellectually curious and motivated students eager to supplement their undergraduate experience in the following ways:

  • Courses designed to challenge (but not overwhelm) students with subjects and activities from a variety of disciplines
  • Social, conference, and service activities to develop academic and personal strengths
  • An understanding that Honors students, faculty, and staff are not perfect—but all are willing and eager to challenge and better themselves
  • Mentorship from faculty and colleagues to explore a range of topics

Honors courses explore important topics in depth, through a multi-disciplinary approach.  The pace of the courses, and the level and quality of work expected of students, requires that participants be self-motivated and that they exercise good time-management skills; however, the small size of each Honors class (fewer than 15 students per section) insures group discussion, interaction with the instructor, and focused guidance and support of each student's academic goals.

In addition to taking Honors classes, members of the Honors Program participate in various co-curricular activities, including group projects, attending cultural events, and participating in the Mideast Honors Association (MEHA) Conference, which occurs each spring semester.
