Honors Program Details
Specialized Honors courses encourage and expect students to develop and share their own ideas in a climate of intellectual debate and sustained scholarly inquiry. The academic growth of students occurs in the context of dynamic interdisciplinary seminars where smaller class sizes permit a more intimate and intensive learning environment.
Honors classes are designed to help students think on their feet and develop their analytical skills, while being mentored by faculty and challenged by their peers.
- Reacting to the Past, Engaging the Present
