Honors Students in Classroom

Curriculum

Innovative Thinking and Conscious Global Citizenship.

Be Prepared to Form New Ideas and New Relationships.

Creative scholarship, service, leadership development, and global experiences are the hallmarks of our interdisciplinary Honors Core curriculum for exceptional students who work closely together and engage in research, team and creative projects. Program distinctives include a curriculum enriched with writing and research, a semester abroad with Belmont faculty, and intentional leadership development for all students.

Honors Core

Signature and Foundations courses are uniquely Honors courses in emphasis, consistent seminar delivery, and intensively focused content. Together with the Degree Cognates, they form the Honors Core.

The Honors Core replaces the BELL Core (Belmont's General Education requirements). Honors students must still satisfy the requirements specified by their major. Learn more about specific Honors Core courses offered in Spring 2020.
