Northwestern State University began offering its Honors Program in select curricula in the Fall 2011 semester.
The Honors Program will offer those students who demonstrate superior intellectual potential an intensive and enriched academic experience. Academic areas who will offer Honors curricula for Fall 2011 include the School of Business, the Department of Biology, the School of Creative and Performing Arts, the Department of Psychology and the College of Nursing & Allied Health. Many other departments will be offering honors curricula in subsequent semesters.
Northwestern' s Honors program is not a separate degree program. Honors students will have the opportunity to select courses that will augment their chosen degree program. Honors courses will fit seamlessly into the student's degree program as either a required course or as elective credit.
