The Honors College at HBU is probably the heart of liberal arts education. Many of the courses are in an interdisciplinary form. This means that faculty with different kinds of expertise (e.g., literature, political science, philosophy, history) will lead seminars for 12-15 Honors Scholars. The Honors College curriculum is an alternative general education program that is based solidly on a foundation of the Liberal Arts. It takes as its subject the Great Books and great questions that have shaped our civilization. The goal is to shape the character of the student as he or she enters the world after graduation.
