WELCOME TO LSA HONORS
Established over 50 years ago, the LSA Honors program carries a proud tradition of experiential learning based on one's major and interests. Approximately 500 students enroll each year, going on to graduate from all areas of
LSA — from Comparative Literature to Physics, from Chemistry to Romance Languages. Honors students seek a comprehensive, challenging approach to their particular field of study, which culminates their senior year with a thesis. By participating in Honors, they are welcomed into an exciting, diverse campus community. These pages feature frequently asked questions, program information, and tools for the process. Welcome!
