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.
To achieve these objectives, our students
- Pursue their academic goals in the spirit of intellectual rigor, seeking excellence in their own discipline and establishing connections in a cross-disciplinary context.
- Express creativity by self-directed learning and aesthetic appreciation.
- Engage in service initiatives through Honors Program- and college-led projects.
- Model leadership by creating opportunities that show others how to pursue rigor, express creativity and engage in service initiatives.
