School of Health Sciences Honors Program

Honors TrainTM

This program will promote and support honors research for high achieving undergraduate students enrolled in the School of Health Sciences. The School selects a small group of exceptional incoming Freshmen for participation in the School of Health Sciences Honors Program each year. Freshman candidates selected into the program will have demonstrated high scholastic ability, intellectual curiosity, and enthusiasm for learning. As a School of Health Sciences Honors Student, students receive unique growth opportunities through:

  • An individualized research project with a faculty member or experienced health professional
  • A first-year fall seminar, exclusive to Freshman Honors Students
  • Academic credit for participating in the project and seminar
  • A chance to communicate and share with upper classmen in the HSCI Undergraduate Honors Program during the spring seminar
  • Peer-mentoring with an outstanding upper-class student

Honors research gives students an opportunity to work alongside internationally respected faculty as they learn how scientists apply the Scientific Method to study the universe. Each faculty member (15) in the School of Health Sciences will receive support ($400/student) to help defray the research costs as they mentor an honors student in their research group.
