About the Honors Program

Arcadia's Honors Program integrates the Honors students' drive to succeed academically with their ability to create change through local, national and global leadership. Students in this integrative and dynamic program become a community of learners, doers and emerging professionals as they engage in a challenging, interdisciplinary curriculum that explores new avenues of inquiry and venues of learning while putting their talents to work in service-learning opportunities both at Arcadia and on a more global campus. 

Specialized opportunities for professional-level scholarship, internships and presentations are provided to ready these students for their professional careers and maximize their marketability.
