The objective of the School of Honors is to promote the intellectual curiosity of the University's most capable students, enabling them to confront complex issues. To accomplish this objective, the program offers small classes specifically designed to develop critical thinking skills, to expand the scope of investigation of a topic, and to explore issues in greater depth than can be done in conventional classes. The program also features interdisciplinary courses that encourage students to make connections among diverse areas of learning. Finally, the Honors Program endeavors to develop students who are prepared to become active and thoughtful members of the University community by involving faculty working together with honors students on challenging topics.
