Christopher Newport’s Honors Program enriches the education of students in all majors by replacing most of the Liberal Learning general education requirements with interactive, interdisciplinary seminars that accelerate the advancement of academically gifted students into upper-level coursework.

Everyone learns by actively participating – even professors. You’ll also be encouraged to pursue independent research, study abroad and civic engagement, all of which will enhance your classroom learning.

The program emphasizes one-on-one advising and a customized curriculum that supports your personal and professional goals. Fewer entry-level courses allow you to spend more time in independent study, research and advanced scholarship.

The rigorous coursework will prepare you for a successful career, wherever your passion lies. You’ll also be ready for top graduate programs in science, medicine, law, political science, English and more.
