Honors students are musicians, engineers, athletes, and scientists from diverse backgrounds and many locations, reflecting the diverse global community of which they are a part. They are athletes, student organization officers, peer mentors, and researchers. They form a welcoming community in which every Honors student has a place.
Our alumni are ambassadors, entrepreneurs, micro-finance investors, authors, and researchers who impact and lead in their own communities, the state of Washington, and the world beyond. They support Honors with their time and gifts. Many say their Honors education was one of the best experiences they had at college.
Honors courses are designed by world-class professors, educators who know how to inspire classroom discussions. They are mentors, not lecturers, who are respected in their own disciplines. They are invited to teach in the Honors College.
What sets the WSU Honors College apart from others?
The Honors College at WSU provides a liberal arts, broad background combined with a focus on critical thinking, communication skills, globalization, and foreign languages.
“The success of our students is in part due to the educational program we offer that provides graduates with the knowledge, skills, and understanding they need to thrive in a 21st-century interconnected world.”
– M. Grant Norton, Dean
