What are students saying about the program?

“The Honors Program at Walsh University was the cornerstone of my baccalaureate education. Honors not only offers students unique classroom experience and embracing cross-curricular education, but also provides an environment for students to deeply engage in challenging topics while developing life-long friendships. The rigor and breadth of the Honors program curriculum qualified me to receive full tuition scholarships at the top graduate schools in the nation, and the experience of writing my thesis enriched my writing style and ensured my future successes in academia. To say the least, the Honors Program at Walsh University is an invaluable experience which should be sought by any student wishing to advance in wisdom, skill and knowledge.” – Andrew Hoy, Class of 2016 (Masters of Theological Studies Graduate Student, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry,Class of 2018)
