The Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University, which opened in the Fall of 1999, is the first public honors institution to be built from the ground up in the United States. Its intellectual foundation is a belief in liberal arts education as the best preparation for a full and productive life. As a public institution, the Honors College offers a quality education at a small fraction of the cost of a private liberal arts education, making it an outstanding value.
With one faculty for every ten students, classes are small, and learning is pursued in formal and informal settings. Students have the opportunity to work on research projects one-on-one with outstanding faculty holding Ph.D.'s from leading universities. Student/faculty collaborations have resulted in publications in scholarly journals and our graduates have gone on to some of the top graduate and professional programs in the country. We invite you to see some of our success stories by perusing our alumni profiles. You can also see some of our student profiles. http://www.fau.edu/divdept/honcol/Alu...
A number of universities offer honors programs or honors colleges. But unlike the honors options at almost all of these other universities, at the Wilkes Honors College you are able to take all your classes within the Honors College, and your professors are faculty whose full-time appointments are to the Honors College: we provide an all-honors education at an all-honors college.
