Douglass Scholars Program

Designed for intellectually gifted students, the Douglass Scholars Program offers a four-year program of academic enrichment and cultural opportunity. In addition to their regular course work, Douglass Scholars participate in an exceptional academic program. During their first two years, students enroll in special interdisciplinary honors seminars, two in their first year and one in their sophomore year. In their senior year, scholars are required to produce a senior honors project, typically in the form of a senior thesis in the Mabel Smith Douglass Honors Program. Alternatively, they may also do honors work in their major or on a specially designed interdisciplinary research project.

Throughout their four years of study, scholars are also eligible to take honors sections of regularly offered departmental courses in a wide range of disciplines. The Scholars Program also provides individualized advising and other opportunities for students to discover their own particular interests and capabilities and set appropriate professional goals.

Every summer the Douglass Scholars Program identifies Douglass sophomores with outstanding academic records who are not already members of the honors program. These students are invited to join the program.

The special courses for the program are listed in the course listing chapter in this section.
