Honors Department Index

The University Honors Program complements the University’s liberal arts mission by (a) offering academically talented students an avenue to demonstrate excellence in competencies characteristic of liberally educated students, (b) directly contributing to the enrichment of Eastern’s academic climate, and (c) providing standards, curricula and learning approaches that could serve as model educational practices at the University. The Program’s requirements and curriculum are intended to be intellectually challenging, while cultivating awareness and attributes that prepare graduates to become dedicated leaders in their respective communities, exhibiting the highest standards of ethical and intellectual integrity.

Applications for admission to the University Honors Program will open in early November. All applicants must be admitted to Eastern prior to completing an Honors Program application. The application deadline is Friday, February 1, 2019 and review of applications will begin at that time.

Please join us for an information session during the Fall Open House on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
Contact the Office of Admissions for details and registration.
