Introduction

Although they are not separated from the campus at large, students in the Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program do enroll in four unique Honors seminar courses in their first two years. Great Issues in Science, Humanities, Social Science and Fine Arts all explore topics of current interest through the use of classical and contemporary readings. Through their small size, discussion format and emphasis on critical thinking and writing, these special courses encourage students to value ideas and to play active roles in their own intellectual development. They also fulfill the special core curriculum for Honors students.

Admission—Students must be admitted to the Brown Honors Program. Visit the program's Web site for admission requirements and information on the application process.
