The University Honors Program provides an enhanced undergraduate experience to high-achieving and intellectually-engaged students. In addition to completing a curriculum of innovative interdisciplinary seminars, Honors students benefit from a wide-range of co-curricular and research opportunities, culminating in their Senior Capstone Project. This project, completed by working one-on-one with a faculty mentor, allows students to develop an independent program of research or creative activity into a substantial original work that demonstrates they are knowledgeable, capable and articulate learners, well-prepared to succeed in their chosen fields. Each year, between 100-150 students complete the Honors curriculum and project to graduate with University Honors.
