In addition to providing an enriched learning environment for completing the General Education Program, the Honors College enables each student to reach his or her full academic potential within their chosen major.

Honors students may pursue any academic major of their choice. Experiential learning opportunities such as internships, study abroad programs, and community service projects are also offered to students. During the final year of undergraduate study, the Honors Senior Thesis provides exceptional preparation for pursuing graduate study or launching a career.

Honors courses are integrated into each student’s program of study, including those who wish to graduate in three years. Honors first-year and sophomore students fulfill their lower-division General Education requirements by enrolling in special Honors courses. Transfer students and others who join the program in their junior year may complete upper-division Honors requirements within two years.
