The Honors Program at Edgewood College seeks to meet the academic needs and aspirations of highly motivated and capable students. We provide opportunities for intellectual and social development both in and out of the classroom. Honors students at Edgewood College don't just enroll in Honors courses. They are part of a learning community of like-minded students who share similar goals. As part of the Honors community, you will experience the love of learning with other peers who are enthusiastic and committed to learning. You will create lasting bonds with fellow Honors students who share motivation, aptitude, and interests. Additionally, our Honors program is very flexible and can be customized. You can develop your own individual Honors course experiences, and you will partner with a faculty member to complete an Honors Scholarship Project in an area of your choosing.
