Fall 2017 Honors Colloquium Presentations

Published Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Honors Program students present end-of-the-semester research projects.

Wayne State College students will present honors research projects in Connell Hall on campus Dec. 4, 6, and 8. There is no admission charge.
 
The WSC Honors Program allows students to be more involved within an academic discipline, to broaden and deepen an education beyond the usual required work, and to nurture and reward genuine intellectual curiosity. 

Research opportunities help develop the skills of independent thinking and scholarly inquiry. The Wayne State College honors program engages students through a combination of specialized general education courses and research projects completed in the academic major.
