Honors College Faculty


Honors faculty are known for their teaching excellence and passion for working with students. Drawn from across Westminster's many departments, programs, and colleges, Honors faculty participate in the program because they enjoy teaching highly driven students, they find interdisciplinary approaches to their subjects satisfying, and they value the excitement that team-teaching provides.

“I love Westminster, and I love the Honors College. I really feel like I found a home of academic inquiry and experimentation that’s not afraid to dream big and think bigger.”
