The Hastings College Honors Program is comprised of no more than the top five percent of all Hastings College students and is designed for those who are committed to academic excellence and curiosity, and civic and global engagement. The Honors Program at Hastings is a way to stand out—and step up. With select honors courses and seminars, you'll appreciate smaller class sizes, additional mentoring and advising from an Honors Program advisor (in addition to your regular major advisor), off-campus activities, priority class registration and an honors designation on your transcript. The bottom line? You'll have more freedom to choose courses you want across all academic disciplines and create an individualized program of study outside your major field that culminates in a Senior Honors Capstone. By tailoring your learning to match your interests and ambitions, the Honors Program will prepare you stand out as you look to start your career or apply to graduate school.
