Western's Honors Program has received recognition as one of the very best in the nation. And, it's part of Western Washington University, which earns national attention for the overall quality of undergraduate education (U.S. News and World Report, 1998-2009), exceptional use of technology (Yahoo.com, 2001), and value (Consumer's Digest, 2004).
With an average class size of 20 students, Honors students have great opportunities to interact with each other and their professors. This environment promotes a strong sense of community and long-lasting relationships.
The Honors program brings the best students and faculty together. Faculty enjoy teaching Honors courses due to the small size, spirit of curricular innovation, and exceptionally bright, motivated students.
Honors students come from all over the United States and abroad. They bring a wide range of perspectives, interests, and talents with them, which enhance the quality of everyone's education.
