The Hollins honors program will complement the challenges of the Hollins academic program for some of our most talented and motivated students. Open to first- and second-year students, the honors program is designed for the student who is intrigued by the idea of working in depth on interdisciplinary, collaborative, student-initiated projects.
Students in the honors program complete a four-semester sequence of two-credit interdisciplinary seminars, joining a small cohort of fellow scholars. During the first year, students work closely with two faculty members to identify group projects of interest and then plan, execute, communicate, and present results from those projects. During the second year, students focus on individual projects, working closely with faculty.
The application deadline is March 1. Students will be selected based on an open application process designed to gain a sense of the student’s motivation and aptitude for challenging, independent, and creative academic work.
