The Honors Program is designed for academically curious students who want to pursue exacting studies in a wide range of intellectual concerns that cross disciplines and cultures. The university’s honors program combines a flexible, interdisciplinary curriculum with small discussion-centered classes. Students and faculty are encouraged to connect and share emerging ideas, drawing on shared texts, lectures, seminar discussions, and cultural experiences. Students also have the opportunity to design a course as a preceptorial and teach each other under a professor's guidance. The mission is to prepare each student for a personally fulfilling and socially responsible life during their college years at Chapman and beyond.
The undergraduate Honors Program satisfies the GE Inter/Multidisciplinary cluster. Select courses may also satisfy major, minor, elective or other general education requirements. The honors courses range in scope from music to math, sociology to science, and communication to religious and philosophical studies.
