DEVELOPING A NEW HONORS PROGRAM COURSE: The World and the West:

Since fall semester 2013, a group of History Department faculty have been working together to create a new course for the University Honors program. The new honors course will be paired and integrated with an existing honors philosophy course on ethics, and a central feature will be examining the historical development of moral frameworks and ethical debates across a variety of cultures and eras.

APPLYING TO THE UNIVERSITY HONORS PROGRAM

The Honors Program is open to academically qualified students in any of Marquette’s seven colleges — Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Communication, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences or Nursing. Historically, we have been fortunate to receive many outstanding applications. This makes the admissions process highly selective, as we've drawn from pools of very well qualified students. The application will be available by October 1. The deadline for Fall 2015 is February 15 and decisions will be mailed by April 1, 2015.
