Wesleyan Scholars Honors Program

What is the Wesleyan Scholars Honors Program?

The Wesleyan Scholars Honors Program takes Smaller. Smarter. even further. You'll take challenging and thought-provoking classes designed for academically curious and motivated students. There are two different ways to participate:

  • University Honors students participate in small seminar classes taught by outstanding scholars in their fields.
  • Department Honors students work with a professor in their major on a research project to expand their knowledge and enhance their resume.
Honors Program Mission
  • Provide motivated students the opportunity to enrich their university experience,Logo updated in fall of 2013.
  • Recognize outstanding academic work beyond degree requirements,
  • Provide a forum for student-student and student-faculty exchange of ideas
  • Celebrate opportunities for conversations across discipline boundaries,
  • Affirm the University as a place of informed and reasoned dialogue.

The Wesleyan Scholars Honors Program supports the University mission because, through both the University Honors Program seminar sequence and Departmental Honors programs, students are given personal attention and are given "the freedom to pursue independent thought and exercise intellectual curiosity."

The honors program also creates a unique learning environment within the larger institution so that students are encouraged to "pursue individual excellence," and "to think clearly and creatively." The interdisciplinary nature of the University Honors Program also supports the liberal arts foundation of the University.
