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.
The Honors Program allows students with a minimum SAT in Evidence-based Reading and Writing and Math of 1220 or an ACT of 25 and a high school GPA of 3.50 or higher to participate in series of intellectually challenging and stimulating honors courses for students interested in a broad educational experience that extends beyond the standard curriculum.
The Honors Program experience also extends beyond the classroom. An important goal of the Honors Program is to foster an awareness of social responsibility, particularly to encourage service for the public good.
