Honors College


The University Honors Program was established in 1978, and designated as an Honors College in 2013.

Mission:

The Bowling Green State University Honors College supports the BGSU mission by fostering a community of scholars.  Through an emphasis on personal and intellectual development, members are challenged to identify their values and broaden their worldview.  

Objectives:

  • Honors College members enjoy a lifelong commitment to engaged citizenship.
  • Honors College members sharpen their critical thinking, allowing them to attain comfort with ambiguity, to cultivate innovation and curiosity, and to explore personal values. 
  • The Honors curriculum promotes collaborative work, creativity, and interdisciplinary studies that culminate in original scholarship in the completion of an Honors capstone project.
  • Honors College students can expect to engage in leadership and professional development opportunities which lead to self-authorship.*
  • Honors College Students work with faculty mentors who encourage them to become leaders in their respective professions and communities.

*Self-authorship is “the capacity to internally define a coherent belief system and identity that coordinates engagement in mutual relations with the larger world” (Baxter Magolda in Baxter Magolda & King, 2004, p. xxii).
