Program Description

Designed for students in all majors, the Kugelman Honors Program is structured so that students complete their Honors requirements over the course of their time as an undergraduate.

In addition to taking Honors-exclusive courses and seminars, Honors students also complete an undergraduate thesis and a minimum of 100 community service hours before graduating as Kugelman Honors Scholars.

The combination of experiences the program provides encourages the development of Arete, Techne, and Sophia--Excellence, Skills, and Wisdom--in Honors students, and prepares them to excel as professionals in their chosen field.
