The faculty who teach in the program are innovative, challenging and provide a dynamic classroom experience. All fulltime faculty members with a desire for teaching excellence are invited and encouraged to explore opportunities to be involved in Honors Program curricula. Faculty can teach honors courses, which are smaller, more discussion-based and are energetic due to the motivation and intellectual curiosity of its students. Whether you are interested in teaching an existing course, or developing a new course, we encourage you to explore these opportunities to teach some of the best and brightest students Bentley has to offer.
In addition to teaching courses, faculty can be involved in the student research process by supervising an honors capstone project. Senior honors students spend a semester developing their research paper under your direction, and present the findings at the Honors Conference held on campus near the end of April. Supervising student research is a rewarding opportunity to expose students to the rigors of the research process and expand a student’s depth of knowledge well beyond the classroom. Though not a requirement of the process, in some cases these research projects have led to published journal articles.
There are also opportunities to develop theme based research seminars with small groups of students who wish to complete their capstone, leaving a wide range of unique opportunities to develop proposals for these research seminar capstones as well.
