About Honors Program

The Honors Program at Southeastern Louisiana University is designed to provide participants with an excellent educational opportunity to learn about not only their chosen major, but also to learn the nature of intellectual inquiry and to study the important issues of our time and of all time.

Honors students benefit from interaction with a community of peer scholars who are equally interested in achieving the most in their college careers.

Under the direction and mentoring of a faculty member, Honors students culminate their college career with a significant research experience or artistic endeavor during their senior year.

Honors students can earn special recognition for their academic achievements including

  • Sophomore Honors Distinction,
  • Senior Honors Distinction, and
  • the Honors Diploma
