The Geneva College honors programs provide opportunities for students to challenge themselves through digging deeper into the college experience, exploring what it means to be a Christian scholar and discovering the lordship of Christ in every aspect of academic life.
The First-Year Honors Program places first year students in living-learning communities in order to explore the meaning of college, discover God's calling and grow in faith. Students participate in special honors-only sections of core classes, engage in enthusiastic discussions with fellow First-Year Honors Program students and attend a number of off-campus cultural events and retreats.
The Young Scholars Program brings together a group of students to discover the lordship of Christ in all fields of academia. Students participate in small seminar classes and discussions that endeavor to discover God's calling in an academic life. Through the two-semester program, students will prepare a paper that explores the integration of faithand learning in their major or field of interest.
The Academic Partners Program connects students with faculty mentors to enable them to complete a significant academic or fine arts project. Students in the program receive one-on-one mentoring and a one-semester stipend.
