The University Honors Program provides intellectual challenges for undergraduates with motivation and outstanding academic promise. Through a cohesive liberal arts curriculum taught in small seminar-style classes by the University's top research faculty, honors students explore the conceptual foundations of the major academic disciplines, the latest developments in scholarship, and the articulation between faith and reason.

Outside of the classroom, students benefit from a vibrant residential community and an array of enriching opportunities, including education abroad experiences, internships, participation in faculty research, fellowship competitions, cultural events in Washington, D.C., and community service. By the time of graduation, they are prepared for a life of intellectual inquiry, personal virtue, and global engagement.
