Discipline-Specific Honors


Discipline-Specific Honors Programs (DSHP) are designed to augment the existing Honors College programs and provide additional opportunities for academically distinguished, highly motivated undergraduates to pursue academic study that (1) challenges their interests and abilities, (2) develops their leadership skills, and (3) helps them to acquire the research skills needed to be successful in graduate school or in a professional career.


The mission of each specific DSHP is to prepare students for careers in all types of organizations and/or for continued academic study. The Robert C. Nusbaum Honors College offers enhanced academic classes, social experiences, and special programs for high-ability students in all majors. It is a community of scholars where critical thinking, curiosity, imagination and creativity are encouraged. About Us
