Residential Honors Program
The Residential Honors Program (RHP) provides an innovative and dynamic living and learning experience for highly motivated scholars.
Students in the RHP:
• take selected freshman and sophomore classes and a corresponding colloquium as a group, working closely with honors faculty and supporting each other by living and learning together in the honors residence hall.
• participate in regular programming in the honors residence hall and around campus, including special sessions with visiting speakers.
• study abroad together in the summer after their sophomore year, guided by MUW faculty and completing two sections of the honors seminars (HO 303). Locations vary with the interest and expertise of the faculty leaders, but have included London, Brussels, and Edinburgh, Scotland.
• are supported by upper-level mentors in the honors residence hall and on honors study abroad.
• complete their honors experience with the other elements of the four-year honors curriculum: Honors Forum, one year of foreign language, and the senior-level independent research project.
Admission to this program is competitive and is granted primarily to the recipients of Centennial and Honors Awards. Other freshmen may also indicate their interest when admitted to the Honors College.
