Love truth, kindle faith, and cultivate virtue in friendship, study, and service to Christ and neighbor.
The Honors College unites four innovative programs committed to helping undergraduates pursue 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.
The Honors College brings together a community of students and faculty devoted to the love of learning, to the cultivation of wonder, and to pursuing life’s most important questions both within and outside of the classroom. Students engage in rich conversations with prominent faculty through two distinct undergraduate majors, University Scholars and Great Texts, as well as two programs, the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core and the Honors Program.

The HRC is home to 330 Baylor students enrolled in one of the Honors College majors or programs above. The HRC is located in Alexander and Memorial Halls.
