The Honors Program at the Mount

The Honors Program at Mount Saint Mary College fosters students’ demonstration of superior scholarship in multiple disciplines, while preparing them to assume leadership through service to the college community and beyond.

Students in the Honors Program at Mount Saint Mary College are given many opportunities to pursue their academic interests and career paths, and to develop new perspectives in the arts, the sciences, history, culture and society, and technology.

Through dedicated housing wings, excursions and service projects, and Honors-specific coursework, Honors students connect with their peers and discover similar motivations, priorities, and interests to enhance the academic community.
 


"I have had many opportunities to enhance my education. For my Honors-by-Contract class, I got to teach the class about the psychological impact of having a family member with cancer, using Erikson's developmental stages."
