The Honors Program will provide intellectually challenging and stimulating honors courses for students interested in a broad educational experience. Honors courses will be either disciplinary or interdisciplinary, and will be distinguished from regular offerings with respect to depth of study and work expectations. The courses will be small and will emphasize discussion, providing students with a more enhanced encounter with the material and encouraging interaction with faculty mentors and other motivated and talented students.
Students in the honors program will have the opportunity to attend lectures, museums, musical performances, and other intellectual and artistic events. An important goal of the honors program is to foster a discriminative awareness of social responsibility and to encourage service for the public good.
