Honors Program

Roberts Wesleyan College is committed to providing curricular and co-curricular enrichment for the academically talented student. Recognizing that students reflect diversity of background and ability, the College offers an Honors Program designed to challenge and support capable students. The Program was introduced in the fall of 1987; since 1991, approximately two hundred students have graduated with Honors Diplomas.

The Program is characterized by:

Individualization:  Students work closely with faculty in planning an academic program that is appropriate to their abilities and needs. 

Independence:  Students take personal initiative to become active participants in their own learning. 

Identification with the total academic community:  Students pursue their many interests through involvement in a variety of campus programs and activities. 

The Honors Program is designed to foster personal development and intellectual growth. Primary elements of the Program include specifically designed Honors courses, Honors study within academic majors, Honors Options within regular courses, a Senior Project/Thesis, and special Honors Community activities.

Students receive all of the advantages of a Roberts Wesleyan education plus unique preparation for further study, professional life, and personal development and service.
