Overview of the Honors Program

The Honors Program at Moravian University offers Seniors of proven ability the opportunity to pursue a year-long study of special interest under the personal guidance of a faculty member who serves as the Honors Project Advisor. This study culminates in the writing of an Honors Thesis which will be permanently housed in Reeves Library. While Honors students usually choose a topic in their major, they may select another academic area or even a combination of areas. Honors study is invaluable preparation for graduate school; the experience has also proven useful to students entering the professional world. Honors students should devote at least one-fourth of their academic activity to their projects.

The Honors Program is only open to full-time students enrolled in Moravian University's day program.

Students usually participate in the Honors Program during their last two semesters at Moravian, typically the Fall and Spring of their senior year. However, students are encouraged to apply for Spring/Fall participation (or other sequences) if they have other obligations during their senior year (such as student teaching or study abroad) or if they intend to finish all of their requirements in the Fall. Hereafter, the two semesters of Honors will be referred to as Semester 1 and Semester 2.
