Students in the Honors Program have many opportunities to develop their own ideas and their writing and research skills; they also benefit from close association with faculty and other students who share their intellectual interests. Honors Program courses encourage students to think critically; express their thoughts clearly, both orally and in writing; expand their perspectives on the world; develop as citizens; understand the nature of scholarly inquiry; and forge connections among disciplines. Successful completion of the Program is a clear signal to prospective employees and graduate or professional schools that the graduate is a serious, well-prepared, accomplished student. Beyond unique, interdisciplinary courses, Honors offers students the opportunity to get involved early in service and experiential learning, undergraduate research, and provides students of all majors with a fun, academically-oriented learning community.
