The Montreat College Honors Program is a community of students and faculty who support and challenge one another’s intellectual and spiritual growth.
Our curriculum is oriented towards a Christian vision of flourishing, both for humanity and creation. Together we explore texts and topics from the Christian, Western, and World traditions from the perspective of multiple disciplines across the arts and sciences asking the big questions of human existence: What is the nature of the universe? What is truth? What is humanity? What is beauty?
We study texts and topics in relation to the Christian scriptures, creeds, and narrative, practicing a mature posture of humility, empathy, and charity towards one another.
All honors students are mentored by the program director and an additional assigned faculty member
Enhanced emphasis on writing through assignments designed to help students be reflective and articulate
Additional co-curricular activities, such as exclusive access to college speakers in a conversational setting
