One of the oldest and most well-respected Honors Programs in the United States, Kent State University’s Honors Program provides students on all campuses the opportunity to participate in learning experiences that are challenging and provide enriching experiences in the student’s areas of interest.
Honors is open to students of Kent State University. On the Regional Campuses, a coordinator for the program provides guidance and advising to students and helps students to create learning experiences in all honors sections, or as an individual project, or as a section of a regular class. Students on regional campuses can complete their honors program on the campus, or, if transferring to Kent Campus, as members of the Honors College there.
Because of the flexibility of the program, students can complete their major and Honors requirements without taking extra classes. Students also have the option of completing an Honors Thesis which does allow for in-depth investigation and presentation. The Honors Thesis involves six credit hours in addition to the number of hours for honors designation.
