The University Honors Program is an intellectual home for Villanova’s academically gifted students. The program empowers its students to be seekers of truth, learning to relate critically and empathetically to their own traditions while exploring contemporary questions. Honors students are given space to test ideas in an environment that supports their own definition of success—both personal and professional. 

  

THE HONORS DIFFERENCE

DISTINCT ACADEMIC PATH

Honors courses are small interdisciplinary seminars that emphasize student initiative in discussion, research and presentations.

RESEARCH

Students have access to meaningful undergraduate research opportunities with Villanova's teacher-scholars. Student research often culminates in Senior Thesis projects.

FIRST-YEAR LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Students can take themed classes over several semesters with peers who share their interests and live with them in Honors housing.

INTERNSHIPS

Students are provided the resources needed to secure internships that support their professional and academic goals. An Honors-specific fellowship program encourages exploration of work that promotes justice.
