Honors College

The Honors College helps top students become global citizens equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

The Honors College, the first of its kind at a Jesuit university, gathers undergraduates in a diverse academic community that cuts across disciplines, providing rich learning opportunities and personalized mentoring with distinguished scholars and artists.

As a student in the Honors College, you will:

  • Study across disciplines — Draw insights from a range of fields such as arts, music, technology, sustainability, and international politics.
  • Conduct research and explore internships — Work with faculty and community leaders to develop research and professional skills required for advanced studies and/or careers after college. Your honors experience will culminate in a capstone project or senior thesis.
  • Learn by doing — Be guided through a process of inquiry, collaboration, and problem-solving in design labs and symposia. Team up with students from different disciplines to explore a social issue and propose community-based solutions.
  • Study abroad — Learn from others, stretch your vision, and explore how language and culture determine values.
