The Honors Program is a four-year program that provides an especially rich and challenging set of academic offerings to talented and highly motivated students in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Through special courses, research opportunities with faculty, and a vigorous intellectual community, the Honors Program enables students to identify their intellectual interests and to pursue them as deeply and thoroughly as they can.
