Honors Program

Do you go above and beyond what’s expected or required of you? Do you want more out of your education? 

The WPU Honors Program is one of the most exciting and prestigious programs on campus. It provides opportunities for academically talented & motivated students to study within a wide array of fields. You’ll be challenged, yet supported in an academic environment where you’ll study, conduct research and exchange ideas.

As an Honors Student, you’ll blaze your own trail. Alongside dynamic faculty, you can explore topics that promote intellectual discovery and development and most importantly – interest you!
