About the Program

Our Honors Program offers outstanding students the opportunity to maximize intellectual growth and experience personal enrichment. Students meet regularly with the program’s directors and faculty, creating a stimulating environment of thought, research and scholarly discourse.

It is possible for students taking senior seminars to complete a senior essay or major research project through honors independent study for which they would receive honors credit.

Please read on for in-depth descriptions of our Honors Program curriculum, faculty and activities – and to meet some of our current honors students.
