At Wesleyan, we believe students with exceptional intellectual ability and initiative deserve to be rewarded and encouraged. That’s the purpose of the Wesleyan College Honors Program and the Departmental Honors Program.
Honors students have their educational experience intensified through higher level courses, academic seminars, and extracurricular experiences. They also have the opportunity for advanced study and research along with or under the direction of selected faculty.
Both of these programs require an honors thesis to be completed during your senior year. For more detailed information on the College Honors Program and the Departmental Honors Program, see our Academic Catalogue.
