A cadre of University scholars is developing a second honors program fashioned after a popular British pre-law program. The philosophy, politics and public honors program will be ready by fall 2003. Admission will be competitive and limited to about 15 students, who will take rigorous multidisciplinary courses, minor in a foreign language and will likely have a summer study experience in London. They will write a senior thesis and earn a bachelor of honors degree.
“It was our feeling that we wanted this program to be a little more weighted toward a humanistic and historical treatment of these problems,” says philosophy professor Paul Colella.
