The Honors Program at Bowie State University is designed to provide unique and challenging opportunities for qualified and motivated students seeking intellectual and personal growth. The program brings together academically accomplished and highly motivated students to pursue studies in the natural sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. Guided by rotating faculty experts, students attend honors sections of general education courses in their freshman and sophomore years. Students may also contract with professors in upper division courses to earn their honors credit.
The Honors Program involves students and faculty from across the University in a community of scholars who together explore questions within and beyond their disciplines. The Honors Program serves, therefore, as the center and symbol of the University's commitment to academic excellence in educating its undergraduates. The "Living and Learning Community" creates an intellectual community where students live together on-campus and share ideas, integrate residential living with classroom activity, and nurture an environment conducive to academic achievement.
Thus, the University Honors Program provides an environment in which students develop their skills, cultivate their talents, and achieve excellence in academics, research, service, and individual development, leading to professional success and personal fulfillment.
