Villanova University Honors Program


Our comprehensive four-year program of challenging seminars, research opportunities, and cultural and social events is designed to bring together superior students and faculty from all four of Villanova's colleges. The Program offers challenging interdisciplinary seminars taught by Villanova's finest faculty, opportunities to engage in independent research, academic mentoring, and an array of field trips to cultural events in Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Honors courses and co-curricular activities enrich and enhance the academic experience inherent to Villanova.
