Program courses are reading and writing intensive and require critical-thinking and analysis. The program curriculum is structured around the theme: "America in the World: Global Awareness & Diversity."

Honors students must maintain a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA. In addition, students must earn a minimum grade of B in each honors course in order to earn honors credit for that course.
