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


Honors Mission

The mission of the Honors Program at Southeastern is to offer curricular and co-curricular
opportunities that help students to know and understand the significant ideas and
events that have shaped our world and will shape the future; to have confidence in
their ability to think independently, write clearly, and speak effectively; and to
develop the skills to be leaders in their communities and professions.
