Honor Scholar Program
If you are an insatiably curious student and thrive on finding and exploring connections between different fields, and have the intellectual courage to explore difficult and unfamiliar topics, then the Honor Scholar Program is for you. The program plays a pivotal role in DePauw’s commitment to excellence in a liberal arts education, and it is open to students of all majors. In their first year, students take two Honor Scholar seminars. In their next three years, Honor Scholars take three discussion-based interdisciplinary seminars, working in a small-group setting with professors to investigate topics in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. As seniors, Honor Scholars complete a thesis, working closely with a faculty advisor and a committee of additional professors. The Honor Scholar program is liberal arts education at its best, and provides a community for students seeking an especially stimulating intellectual experience.
