Honors Courses

The Honors Program at Western New England University is not a major in itself, but is open to students in any major. Students who have been admitted to the Honors Program must complete 6 HON courses (18 semester-hours) and a senior honors project in order to graduate with University Honors. Honors students generally take one honors course each semester for their first three years and work on their honors project during their senior year. All freshman honors students must take at least one introductory (100-level) honors course before proceeding to higher level honors courses. Students also have the option of taking a faculty-directed research course (HON 333) as one of their six honors courses; this course must be approved by the Honors Curriculum Committee.
