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.
