Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program
Are you someone who takes your academic studies further and deeper, who pursues broader interests and higher achievement? In the Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program at Albion, you'll have opportunities equal to your abilities and enthusiasm—interdisciplinary seminars, field trips, guest lectures, visiting honors professors, honors retreats—all designed especially for honors students.
As early as your sophomore year, you will be able to conduct original research, under the guidance of a faculty mentor, through Albion's Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA). Your work will culminate in a senior thesis. Many students in the Program are inducted into Albion's chapter of Phi Beta Kappa—the first established at a private college in Michigan. Your hands-on research and written and verbal communication skills developed in honors seminars will give you a special edge when you apply to graduate schools or for employment.
