University Honors Program
The Wittenberg University Honors Program, created in 1978, is intended to enhance and support the development of a select group of academically outstanding students within the Wittenberg community. The Honors Program provides an academic and social climate in which students of high academic potential can find a community of classmates with similar scholarly goals and professors to support and encourage them in pursuit of those goals. The students are brought together in special, limited enrollment seminars which provide a supportive environment for, often interdisciplinary, intellectual inquiry. The Program culminates in independent scholarly research which produces a senior thesis project within the student’s major area of study.
As a member of the University Honors Program, the benefits do not stop at what the program offers. Being a member of the program gives students the status and eligibility to participate in other campus groups and programs that will not only help them academically, but will allow them to explore interests outside of the scholarly realm.
