Create the experience to match the degree...
Honors programs are based on the belief that superior students profit from close contact with faculty, small courses, seminars or one-on-one instruction, course work shared with other gifted students, individual research projects, internships, foreign study, and campus or community service.
The primary purpose of this program is to provide motivated students with a space in which they can pursue the forces of their curiosity to the greatest extent possible. The job of the Honors Program is to help make connections between students and professors. This means more than simply having them take classes, but to potentially provide for more active learning collaborations.
It's not just about doing more work. We want to create experiences that will not only transform our students, but our community and our world.
