Quality Education in the Benedictine Tradition

The Saint Vincent Honors Program brings together students from across the college who share a vigorous commitment to intellectual life. The backbone of the program is the set of Honors courses that enable such students to pursue a liberal education characterized by intense conversation and work with dedicated professors. We are also seeking to form a broader intellectual community, where the ideas that students explore in the classroom take on a life of their own in the lives of our students.
Honors students have the opportunity to participate in special extracurricular activities, including evening discussions and cultural excursions. They also interact with faculty outside the classroom, providing for support and mentoring throughout (and sometimes beyond) their time at Saint Vincent. We hope to develop and expand these opportunities in the coming years and are excited about the talented group of students we serve.
