The Honors Program

Transition to Graduate Studies

Taking Graduate Courses

Many majors and minors include graduate courses as requirements or optional selections.  The Honors Program enables students that are taking graduate courses to count these courses toward the student’s Honors curriculum while also counting them toward their major or minor degree requirements. 

University Scholars Program

Honors Program students are encouraged to seek admission to the University Scholars Program if they are interested in pursuing a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in the same academic discipline.  Pursuing this option will streamline the student’s educational pathway, saving both time and money.
