George Mason U Honors College

George Mason U Honors College George Mason University Honors College The Honors College Curriculum consists of a set of required Core courses, plus optional Honors subject courses offered by Mason’s departments.
(1)

The Honors Core includes a small number of interdisciplinary courses that satisfy the university general education requirements, allowing students increased opportunities to pursue minors or other individual interests. Because the Honors College believes that a holistic college experience does not just happen in the classroom. Through the Living Learning Community (LLC), the Honors College offers students special access to the intellectual and cultural resources of the university and the national capital region. As a member of the LLC you will consistently have opportunities to take part in on-campus activities as well as field trips throughout the region.

Mission: Honors students are highly motivated, perpetually learning, and inquisitive. They are motivated to ask questions and engage with their communities. 🔟🎂

Our Story

The Honors College at George Mason University opens a world of possibilities to a select cohort of highly motivated, high-achieving students each year. Touting a rigorous curriculum, access to top faculty, plentiful research opportunities, and a cadre of special programs, our Honors College gives students the tools they need to perform work of consequence in our world.

Mason officially launched the Honors College in 2009. In its formation, the college unified the interdisciplinary activities of the previous Honors Program, with aspects of self-guided research of the Undergraduate Research Scholars Program, the academic excellence of Mason Scholars, and advancement efforts of the Office of Fellowships. For a more detailed account of our founding see our website: https://honorscollege.gmu.edu/why-honors/our-history.

As it moves forward from a position of strength, the Honors College is equipped to develop our students as scholars, leaders and change-making members of their communities. Whether you participated in PAGE, the Honors Program, or the Undergraduate Apprenticeship Program, whether you were a Mason Scholar, a Presidential Scholar, or a University Scholar, the Honors College is your home at Mason.
