Core Studies in the Honors Program

Back

True education doesn't happen in a vacuum. That's why the Honors Core complements your major with a whole person approach that engages you with real world issues and communities. Every core class in the four-year program is designed to move you beyond the traditional classroom and put you into contact with people whose lives influence our understanding of the matter at hand.
