Curriculum of the Honors Program

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.
