Additional Opportunities

After you’ve selected your major, what else can you do to make your education work harder?

Honors Program

Open to students in approximately the top 8 to 10 percent of each entering class, the Honors Program provides extra academic challenges in a seminar atmosphere. By participating in the program, you can enjoy smaller class sizes, as well as co-curricular activities such as field trips, special lectures and advising events.

You complete the program with a capstone project focused on a specific area of interest; recent topics have included marketing sustainable projects and services; how the use and misuse of social media can impact careers; and the risks and rewards of high-frequency trading on Wall Street.
