Tulane Honors Program Mission Statement:

The Tulane Honors Program’s purpose is to provide academically gifted and intellectually curious students of all academic majors unique opportunities for immersion in both multi-disciplinary and specialized scholarship.  The Honors Program embraces the ideal of scholarly engagement as a goal for all high-achieving students and this foundation is built through close contact with faculty, both inside and outside the classroom, and an active, scholarly community of their peers.  Honors students pursue serious engagement in academic scholarship through coursework, research, residential communities, international study, opportunities for prestigious awards, and the senior honors thesis; this multifaceted experience culminates in the highest quality undergraduate experience at Tulane University. The scholarly achievements and high academic standards of the Honors Program represent a firm commitment to embodying the academic excellence of Newcomb-Tulane College and to teaching students to live a life of meaning and purpose.

The Honors Program encourages students to explore the range of interests in ways that will allow them to realize their full intellectual, scholarly, and professional potential. The faculty and staff of the Honors Program support students’ exploration through:

  • Honors Curriculum
  • Residential Learning Communities (Wall Residential College and Weatherhead Residence Hall)
  • Undergraduate research opportunities, including the senior honors thesis
  • Studying abroad and other international opportunities
  • Advising on prestigious nationally competitive scholarships, such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Fulbright, and Goldwater

The Honors Program is the students’ partner in these endeavors from the day they set foot on campus to the day that they graduate.
