Honors Program

The Roosevelt Honors Program attracts some of Roosevelt’s most talented undergraduates—students who wish to prepare for a career and also to explore the world of ideas.  By bringing students and professors together in small classes and individual research settings, the Honors Program fosters a strong feeling of community.

The Honors Program offers an enriched academic curriculum of interdisciplinary courses.  Faculty mentors help students shape their academic programs and keep students on the path to success.  Internships and research opportunities at leading business, cultural, medical, and government organizations are offered through the program.  Admission to the program is competitive.  Prospective students should submit the Roosevelt Honors application

For students entering the Honors Program as freshman, the curriculum is a nine-course sequence culminating in an honors thesis in which students pursue original research under the guidance of a faculty mentor.  Students who enroll in the Honors Program after their freshman year will not be required to take the full nine-course sequence.  The program will be tailored specifically for students depending upon their previous academic course work taken at Roosevelt or another fully accredited institution.  The curriculum includes a core set of courses in creative writing and critical thinking in addition to a selection of specialty courses. The specific courses offered will vary by semester.  Consult each semester’s Class Schedule for the most current listings.
