Honorable mention

A challenging liberal arts education. In a smallclass setting. On a large, metropolitan campus.

That’s the idea behind the University’s new honors program.

The program features courses for entering freshmen in their first four semesters at Sac State. There will also be an upper-division component of nine to 12 units that students will take in their junior and senior years.

The program is part of ongoing efforts to foster excellent academic and student programs. It will also help the campus attract more freshmen, a charge that has become more important in recent years.

An initial group of 60 students is scheduled begin in the fall. The program is designed to have a global emphasis and over the course of study students will take honors courses in math, world civilization, biology, government and social studies. There will also be an eight-semester seminar on “great books.”
