The Weber Honors College provides an academic environment in which students experience a dynamic, interactive, and engaged education. The objective of the Weber Honors College is to provide the richest possible intellectual experience by helping students become conversant in multiple disciplines, think flexibly, solve problems and pursue the creative expression of ideas. The Weber Honors College features a unique interdisciplinary curriculum made up of small, discussion-based seminars and innovative teaching techniques that promote active engagement in the subject area and prepare students for high-impact educational experiences beyond the classroom, including study abroad, research, leadership, service, and creative activity; and for future graduate work and successful careers regardless of their chosen field of study.
Recognizing that contemporary issues and problems defy easy categorization, the scope of the Weber Honors College curriculum is deliberately interdisciplinary, flexible, and capable of meeting the needs of students across a wide range of disciplines and majors. The curriculum (Honors Minor in Interdisciplinary Studies) emphasizes discovery, creativity, initiative, responsibility, collaboration, leadership, and independent thought. These are the attributes that enhance opportunities for individuals, organizations, and society as a whole. The integrative nature of the coursework invites students to reach beyond the boundaries of their academic major and join in scholarly conversation with students and faculty from disciplines other than their own.
