The Honors College is designed to bring together high-achieving students and dedicated faculty in a small university environment. It offers motivated students who are serious about their intellectual growth a variety of special enhanced classes. The College fosters close individual contact between students and faculty and brings together talented students from across campus. Honors courses and extracurricular activities are intended to enrich and complement other educational opportunities and programs available to Salisbury University students.

Add value to your college experience. Whatever your major or area of concentration at S.U., the Honors experience can enhance the value of your degree. Graduating with Honors demonstrates to employers and graduate programs that you're the type of person who welcomes challenges and exceeds expectations. Completing the necessary coursework for Honors requires sustained effort across many semesters, and the capstone (or thesis) project shows your ability to work independently at a high level. That kind of determination and self-motivation are attractive to recruiters in virtually every field, giving you a competitive edge in the professional world or in applying to graduate programs nationwide.
