The University Honors Program exemplifies Messiah University’s commitment to academic excellence and fostering an intellectually rigorous Christian world view.

The program provides a series of interdisciplinary honors courses which satisfy selected general education requirements. Participation in the program culminates in an honors research project, typically during the senior year.

The senior students of the University Honors Program are pleased to share their research with a broader audience.

Items in this collection are only available to download when the user is on Messiah's campus or creates an account/login in MOSAIC with a Messiah email.
