Honors Research Opportunities
The Honors program encourages student research both inside and outside of the classroom. Not only is research at the heart of intellectual inquiry and learning, but it also helps prepare students for their lives beyond college, whether that involves graduate school, a specific profession, or other plans. In recognition of the complexity of today's world, the program's curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary approaches to learning.
As the website for one major medical school explains about the advantages for applicants who have done undergraduate research: "Orientation toward lifelong learning, independent thinking, and decision-making are attributes of an excellent physician. It is to your advantage to participate in activities (e.g., independent study projects, research projects, and courses requiring active involvement, etc.) that will foster those attributes." One could say that such activities would lead to success in any field and these are at the heart of the Honors program.
