Our How

Each semester students accepted into the Honors Program take at least one special-topics course offered only to a limited number of Honors students by an instructor carefully chosen for his or her teaching expertise. Honors courses explore important topics in depth, often through a multi-disciplinary approach, and while the pace and the workload will demand self-motivated students, the small size of each Honors class insures ample group discussion and individual interaction with the instructor. Besides taking honors classes, members of the Honors Program participate in various extra-curricular activities, including outings to cultural events and regional honors conferences.
