Honors General Studies Program

The program offers a group of interdisciplinary courses encouraging independent research, writing, and discussion. 

The honors program is a separate track of general studies and not a major or minor in itself. Honors courses have a flavor distinctly different from the regular general studies courses because they use primary source material more extensively than textbooks to enhance the development of independent thinking. Honors courses follow an interdisciplinary approach to stress the unity of knowledge. The classes are more personalized and typically smaller than general studies classes.  Some courses are team taught.

Benefits: Students enrolled in the Honors Program receive a renewable scholarship totaling $5000. Click on the “Honors Scholarship” link for more information.
