Professor Jesse Kavadlo with Maryville honors students at the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference
In order to graduate from the program, a student must do the following:
Complete at least seven honors seminars in core subjects: humanities, writing, history or government, social sciences, fine arts, and science. If all of your honors classes fall under the general education category, you can substitute the BHP for general education.
Demonstrate communication skills that meet BHP standards. This may be accomplished through taking English 204H Writing and American Rhetoric, or by submitting papers to be evaluated.
Maintain at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average on a 4.0 (pefect) scale.
Complete at least two semesters of Honors Colloquia, which includes attending at least four Sunday evening discussion sessions through the course of a semester during which advanced honors students give a presentation or lead discussion on a topic of their choice. In Spring semesters, the colloquium is completed by attending designated academic events (lectures, concerts, etc) and writing analyses of them.
