Above all, it is about Great Questions. More specifically, the University Honors Program is an intellectually lively, interdisciplinary program in the liberal arts. At the heart of the program is a series of four six-credit courses that follow and explore the story of human civilization and thought from the ancient world until today. The Honors Program is truly interdisciplinary and global in orientation. The Honors curriculum includes the study of history, world literature, philosophy, religion, theology, economics, political science, and other aspects of the social, behavioral, and natural sciences. In addition to western civilization and thought, the program gives serious attention to Chinese and Islamic civilization. Participation in the program is open to students from every school within the university, and can be combined with any major program.
