You Belong In The Honors College.

For over 30 years, honors students have accepted Duquesne's challenge to demand more of themselves intellectually, academically and morally.

Are you up for the challenge? In the Honors College, you can:

  • Develop potential to lead your field — through academic achievement, professional development and lifelong attentiveness to the needs and gifts of others.
  • Have unique, tangible opportunities to merge your professional goals with creative work in liberal arts.
  • Absorb the Catholic intellectual tradition and the humanities perspective, which will influence your path when you graduate.
