Small Classes, Big Ideas, Infinite Possibilities
JMU offers three Honors tracks to academically talented students:
  • Track I Honors Scholars - incoming freshmen
  • Track II Honors Scholars - transfer & current students
  • Track III Senior Honors Project

Tracks I and II have the opportunity to choose a signature Area of Emphasis course sequence and participate in an Honors Seminar Abroad program. Track III requires the completion of the Honors Capstone Project only.

Honors Courses

Honors classes encourage faculty and students to explore the world’s problems more creatively and in greater depth. Honors courses emphasize discussion and persuasion, and challenge students to engage in rigorous and imaginative thinking.

Info for Current Students and Faculty

Important information for current Honors students and JMU faculty can be found in the Honors College Handbook.
