The Honors Program provides students the opportunity to explore the subject matter in more depth beyond the regular class curriculum. Honors projects challenge students to think more analytically and to make more connections between their classes and with their world. The experience helps students transform themselves, their communities, and their environment. Students who participate in the Honors Program regularly succeed in achieving their academic, career, and life goals .

The Honors Program is designed

  • To challenge students to achieve their intellectual potential.
  • To improve students' critical thinking, writing, and discussion skills.
  • To help students understand the connections between disciplines.
  • To encourage close interaction among students and with instructors.
  • To support timely and appropriate student transfer objectives.
