Welcome to Honors in the Major Programs

Dean's Welcome

Upper-division honors programs on the Boca Raton campus of Florida Atlantic University, also known as honors-in-the-major, have been steadily growing over the past few years, and we plan to offer more in the future. These programs, which have stringent entry requirements, offer honors coursework (or honors compacts) and culminate with a capstone requirement. We invite you to browse through these pages and follow the links to existing honors-in-the major at Florida Atlantic University.

University Honors Coordinator's Welcome

Having completed an honors-in-the-major program as an undergraduate, I value the impact it had in my life. As a French major, I was able to do independent research, work one-on-one with my director, and write an original thesis. At Florida Atlantic University I continue to be involved with Honors education by offering courses at the lower-division as well as coordinate the offerings at the upper-division level. I want driven students seeking a challenge to be able to experience the rigors of an honors education.

As University Honors Coordinator, it is my responsibility to not just help students reach their highest potential but be instrumental in aiding departments and colleges as they propose honors programs in their respective majors.
