Welcome to Marymount University’s Honors Program!
The Honors Program at Marymount engages a diverse, intellectually-curious, academically-gifted community of students and represents all majors on campus. The rigorous 24-credit program was established in 2003 and emphasizes academic excellence via a learner-directed, research-based curriculum. Through one-on-one faculty-student tutorials, small discussion-based seminars, and service-learning projects, the program is aimed at cultivating students’ research, communication, and critical thinking skills.
We also have an active Honors community, with guest lecturers from Marymount, as well as other universities, government agencies, and non-profits, film screenings and panel discussions, Honors faculty and staff led field-trips into D.C., service opportunities, and monthly coffee hours hosted by our Honor student leaders.
If you are a prospective high-school or community college transfer student, or a current Marymount student looking to be a part of a thriving intellectual community, then I encourage you to learn more about our Honors Program by watching the video below and exploring the tabs to the left.
