The Seton Hill Honors Program consists of:
Capstone Experience Options
Students design a research project, under the direction of two faculty members, that expands the student’s major field of study, or that increases the student’s knowledge of another academic field of interest.
Travel as Text Capstone
Students use the analytical and critical thinking skills they've learned in their major and liberal arts classes to "read" a new place and its surrounding culture. Travel as text has two options:
The Honors student identifies and completes a community certification program, so as to learn in a venue different from the University, and to acquire certification for skills needed in the community. Such certifications serve the public while expanding the student's experience in creative and innovative directions.
Honors courses and the Honors sections of the required liberal arts courses will receive a letter grade with the exception of HP300 Designing the Honors Capstone, which is graded Pass/Fail. Students must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3 to remain and graduate in the Honors Program. Honors students must complete at least one three-credit Honors designated course in every academic year to maintain active status in the program.
