The Wesleyan Scholars Honors Program supports the University mission because, through both the University Honors Program seminar sequence and Departmental Honors programs, students are given personal attention and are given "the freedom to pursue independent thought and exercise intellectual curiosity." The honors program also creates a unique learning environment within the larger institution so that students are encouraged to "pursue individual excellence," and "to think clearly and creatively." The interdisciplinary nature of the University Honors Program also supports the liberal arts foundation of the University.
Participate in either or both University Honors (as a University Scholar) or Departmental Honors (as a Wesleyan Scholar).
Upon successful completion of either or both programs the student will receive Honors recognition on their diplomas.
The University Honors Program (University Scholars) consists of four (4) two-hour honors seminars taught in consecutive semesters.
