Small Classes, Big Ideas, Infinite Possibilities
JMU offers three Honors tracks to academically talented students:
  • Track I: incoming first year students
  • Track II: transfer and current students
  • Track III: transfer and current students

Tracks I and II pursue a minor in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies and receive designation as Honors Scholars. They have the opportunity to choose a signature area of emphasis course sequence and participate in an Honors seminar abroad. The Honors minor includes completion of the Honors capstone project.

Track III requires 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
