The Honors Program is a unique program, that features a multi-disciplinary approach that complements and enhances the liberal arts program at Mars Hill University. It consists of honors mini-courses, which meet throughout the semester to supplement a student’s regular class load. These mini-courses focus on exciting topics with passionate faculty. Some examples of current mini-course topics include a course in data analytics which helps students use analytics to distinguish fact vs. fiction, a course on cultivating historical empathy, and a course on modern stoicism which focuses on stoic philosophy in modern business management. They are also enrolled in an FYS-111 section with their peers, this years version is taught by Dr. Matt Baldwin and is a Seminar on Excellence in Life, School and Work. Subtitled: The Good Life.
Students enrolled in the honors program also have special housing selections and access to the Honors Center, which is their own space to build community, connect, host movie nights and gatherings, and study.
The Honors Program is a scholarship program, with students receiving additional financial aid.
The Mars Hill University Honors Program enhances the university’s rigorous liberal arts education, graduating exceptional students who emerge as intellectually curious scholars and effective, principled leaders –at their institution, in their communities, and in the world.
