Honors Programs

  • Baccalaureate Program

    This is the program route most Honors students take within the college. You'll enroll in Honors courses, participate in service and engagement requirements, and publish your own undergraduate thesis or capstone project at the undergraduate level.

    Program Requirements

  • Associate Program

    If you haven't completed the required prerequisites of the baccalaureate program, you may still be admitted into the Honors Associate Program. You'll need to take at least one course each semester to match the prerequisites until the deficiencies have been managed.

    Program Requirements

  • Individualized Program

    This is available for high–achieving students who wish to change the curriculum requirements for either the bachelor's or associate program.

    To do this, you'll need to prepare a full proposal explaining your reasons and the exact course format you plan to complete.
