Honors Program at Xavier

The tradition of honors studies at Xavier dates back more than 50 years. Xavier offers three distinct honors programs to its most serious students.

Small class sizes, interdisciplinary coursework, foreign study and a community of fellow students and teachers characterize the programs. Though each has a unique focus and emphasis, all three honors programs allow students to pursue a traditional liberal arts curriculum embracing the humanities, the natural sciences and the social sciences. Infused throughout is the centuries-old Jesuit emphasis on intellectual values and ethics.

Admission is competitive. Students who are accepted take the same core curriculum expected of all Xavier students, though at an honors level and with additional requirements.
