The Honors Curriculum
Focused Instruction Academic Excellence
Honors seminars are discussion-based and allow students from diverse disciplines to dive into advanced topics. The Honors Program is designed to complement any major or student-designed program. Because honors electives may fulfill one or more general education requirements, completing the honors curriculum does not necessarily require additional coursework, but rather offers a flexible, customized path through the liberal arts experience.
