这个项目

The SPU honors program is an accelerated alternative to regular General Education for intellectually curious and motivated 学生 at 西雅图 Pacific University, guided by the framing question, “What does it mean to be human?“这很有挑战性。, 基于探究的, and interconnected curriculum asks 学生 to go deeper into the key questions at the heart of our lives, 赌博十大靠谱软件的信仰, 赌博十大靠谱软件的世界.

Honors at SPU is also an important vehicle for fostering equity and inclusion through a curriculum that focuses explicitly on knowledge construction in order to both understand and interrogate it. This commitment is foundational to the liberal arts tradition as well as to faithful academic scholarship, informed by values of intellectual hospitality, inclusion and embrace, and “loving our neighbors as ourselves.”

Successful completion of all requirements leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Honors Liberal Arts as a second or co-major only. A minor in Honors Liberal Arts is also available for interested 学生.

As a University Scholar, you will:

  • Learn from and engage with world-class faculty from across the disciplines
  • Push yourself to use the intellectual, personal, creative, and social abilities God has given you
  • Discover what it means to learn in a rich intellectual community of fellow scholars
  • Forge deep, lifelong friendships with other honors 学生 over your years in the program
  • Graduate prepared to join the ranks of SPU honors 校友 who have gone on to success in careers and graduate programs

“What does it mean to be human?”

This question is an over-arching theme of the honors curriculum. And we ask this question in an inter-connected and interdisciplinary set of courses, forming a close-knit learning community of 学生 and faculty members seeking and inquiring together.  More detailed honors course specifics can be found 在这里.

A limited number of 学生 are accepted into the honors program every year and t在这里 is always a waiting list for admission. Students can apply to join SPU honors at any year during their time at SPU. Note that transfer courses and credit for exams such as AP, IB, and Cambridge International  cannot be used to replace HON courses, though they will still count toward the SPU degree.
