Honors Program

You have to be "brainy" to take honors, right? That's partly right, but not the whole story.

You also need an interest in thinking for yourself. In hands-on learning, research, and creative activities. In joining other students and faculty in discussions, projects, field trips, and cultural experiences. And, in earning a diploma with magna or summa cum laude honors. Future and current students can apply.

Some 5-to-10 percent of Butler's students participate in the Honors Program. You may qualify for the program based on your previous class ranking, GPA, or SAT/ACT test scores. Talk to CHASE to find out more.

CHASE also offers thesis research grants for students conducting research for their honors thesis.
