Benefits of the Honors Program


The Honors Program curriculum provides an intellectual backdrop to students’ chosen fields of study; gives students needed context for study at the graduate level; and equips students with critical thinking, reading, writing, and discussion skills that will prove invaluable in the working world.

Students in the Honors Program see that intellectual pursuits are not reserved for those in the academy but have a productive, positive bearing in all vocations.
