Special Programs

At Albion, the classroom is only the beginning. We provide you with many opportunities to connect your field of study to the real world. Get involved by stepping outside of the classroom, engage in our special programs and take your academic experience to the next level.

Honors Program

Where curious minds reach higher.

Science. Humanities. Fine arts. Social sciences. Our curriculum immerses you in these four fields of intellectual inquiry, then connects and expands your thinking through a senior Honors thesis.

From our home base inside the campus' historic Observatory building, students in the Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program have access to a number of challenging and rewarding experiences. We explore. We create. And we go places (like the Art Institute of Chicago and to Broadway shows around Michigan).

It’s a balance of rigorous academics and social support that works—our students have recently won a National Science Foundation research award, two Morris Udall awards, and a number of Fulbright fellowships.

We're glad you're thinking about Albion's Honors Program. We encourage you to explore our site, and to contact us with any questions.

movement toward change.

Let’s face it: you love this planet, and it’s where you’ll spend a lot of your time.

Sometimes the best classroom settings aren’t classrooms at all. Our field seminars are life-changing: you’ll travel to diverse locations around the U.S. and meet people who are working on environmental protection and sustainability causes. And through internships and research projects, you’ll explore the social, political, and scientific dimensions of sustainability and be well prepared for a career in this vital field.
