Honors Program

Men and Women for All Seasons

Thomas More Honors Program Logo‌The Thomas More Honors Program is home to Sacred Heart’s brightest and most committed students. Here's some of what is distinctive about what we do:

  • Honors courses are more student directed
  • Honors students have greater access to resources to enhance their studies
  • Student learning is more active and experience based
  • Honors students have a great diversity of professional goals and extracurricular interests
  • Students in the Program are members of a strong and dynamic learning community

In sum, our mission is to serve as leaders and teachers in the intellectual, cultural, and spiritual life of the University. Like St. Thomas More, we strive to be “men and women for all seasons”.

If you like, we can arrange to have you speak with an Honors student or visit our campus. We’d be happy to discuss why you should begin your education with us.

Education is not the piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, or abilities - that's training or instruction - but is rather making visible what is hidden as a seed. - Thomas More
