The Monroe College Honors Program provides opportunities for academically accomplished students to engage in advanced academic work and to participate in enhanced intellectual experiences with distinguished professors and guest lecturers.
The full intellectual engagement of students and faculty is emphasized by promoting an academic environment characterized by a high level of discourse, integrity, respect and excellence. The pursuit of excellence in college-level studies entails thorough understanding and informed appreciation of areas outside a major field of specialization, along with focused excellence within it. Hence, the Monroe College Honors Program provides challenging courses, active learning opportunities, and strong personal advisement which broaden and deepen the academic experience.
In addition, the Honors Program sponsors lectures, seminars and workshops for Honors Program students and faculty, as well as the general Monroe College community.
Each semester, the Honors Program sponsors the Honors Colloquium, a scholarly and celebratory program where honors students present their projects and papers to the college community.
