Honors Program Overview and Goals

Explore the innovative new Bethany College Honors Program!

The Honors Program is a curricular/co-curricular/residential approach to education that focuses on teaching and learning at the highest, and most exhilarating, levels. Drawing on the abilities and the flair of the best of our faculty and the best of our diverse group of students, students will start off with a sequence of Honors courses replacing First-Year Experience and College Writing requirements, and will provide a core of Honors seminars and special events. Honors students will be housed with the other Honors students in the Honors residence, advised by the Honors Director as well as by a major advisor, and mentored by an Honors Residential Assistant in a unique living and learning community designed to support work and intellectual play here.
