Honors Program

Westminster College’s Honors Program believes that the life of the mind is best cultivated when students take what they have learned in the classroom and go out into the world. That’s why our program builds international travel into its sequence of interdisciplinary, global honors seminars with a trip to Greece. The All-College Honors curriculum integrates a significant portion of the college’s general education requirements, including Writing, Speech and Inquiry, the cluster requirement, and a variety of the college’s seven required Intellectual Perspective courses.
