About Honors at Houghton
Honors at Houghton is more than the classes you take: it is an experience that combines theoretical knowledge and practical application in a way that will help you realize your God-given potential. Along with the Honors at Houghton, students have the opportunity to be considered for the following competitive scholarship:
Houghton College Founder's Award: $12,000 to Full Tuition
Honors at Houghton introduces students to challenging, interdisciplinary, experiential learning situations unlike anything they’ve encountered before. Our honors experiences go beyond intensive classroom discussions and require learners to immerse themselves in complex questions.
These honors experiences provide formative learning experiences that establish a framework of study and service, empowering our students to impact the world long after leaving Houghton College. Our honors alumni have pursued master’s and doctoral degrees at institutions including Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, University of Chicago and Indiana University in fields as diverse as neuroscience, molecular biology, law, music and theology. Other alumni have immediately taken their education around the world to impact others where they have taught in West Africa, performed linguistic surveys in Afghanistan, and joined urban development projects in Buffalo, N.Y.
Coming in fall of 2014, the honors experience will continue after the first year. For students starting in fall of 2014 and beyond, Houghton is debuting an extension to its longstanding honors curriculum; more details will be going out to all honors candidates.
