College Honors Program

College Honors Program

The College Honors Program exemplifies Messiah College's commitment to academic excellence and fostering an intellectually rigorous Christian world view.

The College Honors Program is designed for students who demonstrate high scholarly ability early in their academic career.  The program provides a series of interdisciplinary honors courses which satisfy selected general education requirements.  Participation in the program culminates in an honors research project, typically during the senior year.  In addition, various campus activities are designed each semester for participants in the College Honors Program.

Admission to the program is highly competitive and students selected for the College Honors Program receive either full tuition (Trustees') or partial tuition (President's or Provost's) scholarships.
