The Honors College is an educational community for undergraduate students at HBU that aims to educate students in wisdom and character. Built on the scholarly activities of reading, writing, questioning, thinking and discussing, the Honors College provides an experience perfect for students who want to challenge themselves academically. (Take a look at the reading list for Honors College students.) Because of their commitment to excellence, Honors College students get the most possible out of their college education, and, of course, graduate with a higher level of distinction.
Within the context of Christian faith, students are inspired in the Honors College to develop their moral and intellectual lives. As Winston Churchill said, “The first duty of a university is to teach wisdom, not a trade; character, not technicalities.” There is no better way to get this foundation of wisdom and character than experiencing the challenges and rewards of our Honors College.
The Honors College is not a major, but is an enhanced way for students to satisfy the liberal arts core requirements of any degree offered at HBU. Students in any major can participate in the Honors College. Interested students can apply online or contact the Honors College with any questions.
