Honors Program

The Honors Program is a small, highly selective program for students of demonstrated academic achievement. Since students are from all areas of the university, they are encouraged to participate with their academic units in Scholars Week activities, as it is difficult to create coherent sessions with such a disparate group. Scholarship and research are a normal expectation of the program. Honors requires a rigorous senior experience of all students, and while the character of each one varies by student major, e.g., a year in a lab, work in a field project, or immersion in primary source material, the program expects each student will do something approaching professional level work in an area. It is common for Honors students to publish as undergraduates, and roughly one-third have the results of their senior scholarly work appear in print. Over half of all students who complete the program go on to graduate and professional school.
