Arts & Sciences Honors Program

A Mark of Distinction

The Honors distinction on your academic record is an ideal way to show graduate schools and potential employers that you are a person who takes the extra step to learn and to excel. You will be regarded as a motivated individual who sought and accomplished a long-term challenge, and who graduated with distinction.


The College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program is open to students of almost every major, and requires no additional tuition cost and no extra graduation requirements. The benefits of being in the Honors Program include specialized versions of required courses, greater opportunities to work one-on-one with faculty, and a competitive edge in the job market both in terms of experience and credentials. Student-faculty committees determine social and cultural events, course offerings, and admissions. We believe that participation in the Honors Program will greatly enhance your experience at Western New England University.
