Inside Honors 2018-2019: Ratings and Reviews of 50 Public University Honors Programs
Public universities are continuing the trend of establishing honors colleges and programs in order to attract highly-talented students and provide them with an education that combines the best qualities of elite private colleges with those of public research universities.Are honors programs really a combination of a “liberal arts college in the midst of a prominent research university, with all the advantages of both”? This typical description of public honors programs is sometimes true, sometimes misleading, and fairly often offset by equivalent values that are not mentioned in the hype.What, then, might make a public honors option truly competitive? To understand exactly what these programs offer, parents and prospective students need to look inside honors.Rated Programs: Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado State, CUNY Macaulay, Delaware, FAU, Georgia, Georgia State, Houston, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, LSU, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada Reno, New Jersey Inst Tech, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Texas Tech, UAB, Univ of Central Florida, University of South Florida, UT Austin, Vermont, Virginia Commonwealth, Washington State, and West Virginia.Also included are these honors reviews: Alabama, Florida International, Kentucky, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Portland State, Rowan, Texas A&M, UC Irvine.Recognized by the New York Times for his work, editor John Willingham has spent seven years researching and writing about public university honors programs.
