The honors program is meant to enrich your college experience rather than piling on extra work. To that end, we have designed a curriculum that allows you exemptions from certain core classes in exchange for completing levels of honors coursework. You also have flexibility in fulfilling upper lever honors requirements—honors electives, study abroad, writing a departmental honors paper or honors thesis—all of these qualify for Honors credit. Honors classes are enhanced by field trips, guest speakers and a variety of hands-on activities and special projects. In keeping with the collaborative nature of the program, students meet as a group to decide on the topics of their senior seminars and suggest faculty they would like to teach them.
