John F. Reed Honors Program

Honors Program Catalog Information

The John F. Reed Honors Program is for high-achieving students. Applicants should be both curious and disciplined.

Students should apply early in their college career. Those with more than 50 credits are not eligible for admission. Applicants should review the program requirements before applying.

Once admitted, each Honors Scholar meets with the Honors Coordinator to design a unique course of study. The Honors Coordinator will mentor each Honors Scholar in a collaborative, creative engagement of a real-world problem. Their combined efforts lead to the scholar's capstone project completed in their final year.

Honors Scholars must complete the introductory course (HON 250) and five (5) two-credit forums before proceeding to their capstone project. Forums are unique two-credit courses taught by selected members of the Honors Faculty.

Honors Scholars successfully completing and presenting their capstone project earn a minor in Rhetoric of Inquiry.

The Honors Coordinator, working under the Associate Vice-President for Academic Affairs, directs the John F. Reed Honors Program in partnership with Faculty Honors Council.
