To dream big.
The Global Ideas Honors Program consists of students passionate about life and about learning. We cultivate a community of scholars who dream about changing the world. We seek students who want to hold on to their dreams and pursue their passion.
The Global Idea Honors Program offers innovative interdisciplinary courses, study-abroad opportunities, and individualized attention as you complete your General Education alongside a major of your choice. We seek students who want a challenging academic experience, one filled with exciting and stimulating unknowns.
To explore the foundations of our modern world.
The Global Ideas Freshman sequence will guide you through primary texts, both historical and modern, that present the best and most challenging ideas on the human condition. We want students who thrive in an intellectual atmosphere that examines our shared values.
To fit the wide-ranging pieces of that world together.
The Interdisciplinary Honors Seminars juxtapose different academic disciplines in creative and unusual ways. These student-based seminars avoid long and dry lectures and don’t ask students for rote memorization. We seek students who are self-motivated and curious.
Most of all: to enter into community with motivated, excited, and ambitious students.
Honors Program participants are immersed in a stimulating community that results from intensive class discussions, shared co-curricular activities, and relaxed social events. We look for students who appreciate learning with others from diverse backgrounds and who respect different opinions and perspectives.
