The Honors College brings together four innovative interdisciplinary undergraduate programs: the Honors Program, University Scholars, Baylor Interdisciplinary Core, and Great Texts. What unites the four programs is their shared commitment to providing students the opportunity to pursue the questions that often fall between the cracks of the specialized disciplines, by exploring the writings of scientists along with the writings of poets, historians, and philosophers.
We thank you for your interest in the mission and vision of Baylor University and invite you to make a gift to support student scholarships, faculty research and needs and priorities within the Honors College today.
