Honors Program

The Honors program at Western New England University is not a major in itself but is open to students invited by their respective Colleges—Arts and Sciences, Business, and Engineering. It is intended to give academically qualified and motivated students the opportunity to join a community and participate in challenging courses taught by some of the University's most talented faculty.

The program allows students to broaden their education by taking courses in a variety of disciplines with Honors students from other majors and by exploring topics that push cross-disciplinary boundaries. Students will also take an active part in leadership activities related to Honors.

Students studying abroad

Global Scholars

The Global Scholars program provides Western New England University students with the opportunity to distinguish themselves by developing an understanding of another region or nation outside of the United States through University coursework and international study experiences. While the structure of each Global Scholars program is determined and overseen by the College in which the student is enrolled, all Global Scholars programs include these core elements: an introductory experience or course; study abroad; and courses in international issues, area studies, or foreign languages.

Programs are offered through the College of Arts and SciencesCollege of Business, and College of Engineering.
