You don't have to be a physics major to be blown away by the field trip to the NASA facility where scientists are building the next generation space telescope that is seven-times more powerful than the famous Hubble Space Telescope. You don't have to be an art student to be moved by the paintings of Vincent van Gogh when you and your classmates visit the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. And you don't have to be studying philosophy or politics to enter into lively and probing class discussions about big questions and controversial issues.

As a student in Catholic University's Honors Program, you will have opportunities like these and many more.

Arts and Sciences majors from all 17 of our departments enrich their educational experience through participation in the Honors Program. It's a wonderful way to learn side-by-side with students from every area of study the University offers. The curriculum is built to challenge and inspire students from all disciplines. The Honors Program works with individual students to make sure that honors courses satisfy the requirements of their varied academic curricula.
