Honors Program Requirements

All students must complete at least five honors courses. One of the five must be a colloquium, an advanced-level seminar.

Out-of-Class Events

Students must complete eight out-of-class events over the course of each academic year.

These events include a wide variety of cultural and academic activities both on and off campus.

The program also makes available discounted tickets for the Walnut Street Theatre, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and the Opera Company of Philadelphia; students can attend these performances and receive out-of-class enrichment credit.

It is up to the students to decide which events they wish to attend; however, all students must participate in Honors Week, a campus-wide celebration of academic excellence held every March.

Grade Point Average

Students must have a 3.25 GPA or better at the time of graduation to complete the requirements for the program.

Certificates

Students earn either a Certificate of Honors in General Education or a Certificate of Advanced Honors in General Education if they complete an additional Colloquium or an Honors Independent Study in some area of General Education.
