Honors Program and Societies

The Honors Program

The Honors Program invites a select community of students on a journey of excellence. These students will be provided opportunities to explore the interfaces among their area of professional study and the social sciences and humanities; to gain the sensitivity to project and to test the moral and social implications of their future professional judgments and activities; and to foster respect for self and others in preparation for full and productive lives. The philosophy of the Honors Program is that well-educated individuals should seize the opportunity to take the knowledge they have gained in their educational settings and experiences and apply it to the betterment of the communities from which they come and to those in which they plan to serve. The Honors Program is available to Boston Campus students.
