Apply to Honors

Engage in Undergraduate Research

Picture yourself publishing your work or presenting research findings on the national stage.  While you begin your studies in an honors freshman seminar and honors sections of introductory courses, the Honors Program also provides you with both the challenge and support as you complete your Honors Thesis, a substantial research project mentored by a professor in your field of study.

  • Small honors classes taught by dedicated professors
  • Requirements account for students with dual enrollment or AP credit
  • Faculty-mentored research
