Initiated in 1980, the Livingston College Honors Program provides a challenging learning experience to exceptional students who demonstrate promise of intellectual or artistic achievement. The honors program is comprised of a four-year sequential curriculum and is an integral component of a student`s academic program. Seminars are interdisciplinary in content and taught by outstanding senior faculty representing various disciplines at the university. For the sequence of courses, see the Course Listing section. The fourth-year honors thesis may be combined with a departmental honors thesis or independent study in a department.
Honors students participate each term in the honors colloquium, a 1-credit open forum which includes lectures, film screenings, art exhibits, and cultural events on and off campus.
Applications for the honors program are available from the Office of the Dean for Academic Programs. Qualified first-year or sophomore students who have finished their first term may apply for admission to the program on a space-available basis. Students who successfully complete the four-year program will receive a special notation on their transcript.
