The Belmont Honors Program Provides High-Quality Enrichment Through:
Interdisciplinary Core Curriculum.
Real life doesn't consist of history in one little cubbyhole or literature, philosophy, math, science, music, or religion in their compartments. The Honors Program integrates these fields of knowledge in a series of courses that lets the student learn through innovative exploration.
Close Faculty-Student Relationships.
Honors seminars are smaller than regular general education classes, offering the Honors student a chance to work closely with Belmont's finest faculty. The Honors Tutorial is an unique one-on-one with a professional in the student's chosen field. The Honors Leadership track allows the student to learn from many of Belmont's and Nashville's finest leaders.
Unique Privileges and Perks.
Honors students enjoy benefits not provided to all undergraduates such as freedom to form their own degree plans, a private faculty tutor, assistance in attaining scholarships, priority registration, special recognition at graduation with distinctive regalia, access to the Honors House (a seminar and lounge facility), and research funds for thesis projects.
Social and Cultural Opportunities.
Belmont Honors classes have toured Italy and New York; students have studied in Uruguay, Japan, France, England. They study, meet classes, and host social events in the Honors House, a beautiful turn-of-the-century mansion on the south side of campus. Belmont Honors students are ushers at TPAC, engineers at Nashville studios and media outlets, performers at the Ryman, and producers of campus concerts.
Studies Abroad Opportunties.
Belmont offers Study Abroad programs in China, Italy, Spain, Germany, England, Ireland, Australia, Russia, and other foreign countries.
