Benefits

What are some of the benefits if I choose to join the Honors Program?

Being an Honors Program student is translated into several benefits. For example,

  • Most Honors Program classes have 10 – 15 students per class.
  • Small class size means ample opportunity to engage in an in-depth classroom discussion.
  • Honors Program courses are reserved for Honors Program students only.
  • Honors Program students have an opportunity to engage in an independent research (HON 479: Senior Honors Thesis), preparing them for their future graduate studies.
  • Every year, Honors Program students present their research papers at the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) and/or Southern Regional Honors Council (SRHC).
  • Honors Program students have access to the Honors Program computer lab which is located in Landon 206-G.
  • First-year Honors Program students can participate in the Honors Living and Learning Community during their first semester at Barry.
