Goals of Honors

Honors work in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) is designed to foster intellectual curiosity and to provide a rich, diverse, and challenging educational experience. To that end, we bring professors and talented students together in a variety of ways: by offering a broad range of honors courses with limited enrollments; by providing extensive opportunities for Honors students to participate in individual projects with professors; and by providing supplementary activities through "The Honors Experience".

History of Honors in Liberal Arts

CLA Honors was first designed by faculty committees in the late 1970s. The first record of a student graduating with Honors from the College of Liberal Arts (then the School of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education) is in December 1982. Since then CLA Honors has grown extensively. Approximately seventy-five students a year now graduate with College Honors, and the membership averages three hundred members. Yet more students regularly enroll in honors courses - which are open to all students with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
