The Medaille College Honors Program is a distinctive academic community that brings together talented and highly motivated undergraduate students, outstanding and enthusiastic faculty, and dedicated staff and administrators with the shared goal of promoting a rich, dynamic intellectual environment within and beyond the classroom. The purpose of this innovative program is to enhance the educational experiences of honors students by combining a sequence of eight honors-level General Education courses with an array of co-curricular events and projects designed to nurture deep intellectual inquiry, develop academic integrity and leadership skills, and foster a sense of shared moral commitment within the communities of Buffalo, Western New York, and the world.
Benefits to students in the Honors Program include:
Furthermore, since the curriculum of the Honors Program is structured around accelerated versions of Medaille’s General Education courses, qualified students pursuing any undergraduate baccalaureate degree program are potentially eligible to participate.
Students that exhibit strong academics, skills, character, motivation and leadership will be selected to be part of the Honors Program. Selections are carefully made following a student's acceptance decision. Those selected will be notified in their acceptance packet from the Undergraduate Admissions Office. In order to participate in this program, selected students must choose to accept this distinction by completing the Honors Enrollment Form.
More detailed descriptions of the aims, structure, and policies of the Medaille College Honors Program can be found in the Student Handbook.
Please note: space in this program is limited and an application does not guarantee an acceptance decision. Participation in the College Honors program is always voluntary.
The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
