Honors Program

Elevate Your College Experience

What our students love most about the Honors Program at Bridgewater State University is a sense of belonging. We invite you to join this community of over 1,000 motivated students and inspiring professors. You’ll enhance your academic experience, make lifelong friends, and receive guidance from mentors to do your best work — all with the social support that shows you belong.

Join the Honors Program and become part of a diverse and inclusive community. Enjoy small classes, build close relationships with professors, and gain valuable transferable skills through honors courses and projects. BSU honors students are excellent candidates for opportunities in research, community engagement, study abroad, and leadership — on campus and well beyond. 

Why Honors?

  1. Become part of a community committed to academic success.
  2. Experience greater student-faculty interaction and engaging discussions in honors courses, which are capped at 15 students.
  3. Stand out for internships, jobs, leadership opportunities and scholarships.
  4. Create lifelong friendships and be supported both in and outside the classroom when you join an Honors Living Learning Community.
  5. Register for classes early so you get the courses you need when you need them.
  6. Attend more than a dozen free social events every year.
  7. Enjoy the benefits of the Honors Center, which provides you with a home away from home.

Jake Murray

The most valuable aspects of the Honors Program for me were the First-Year Living Learning Community (LLC) and Honors core classes, including First-Year Seminar and Second-Year Seminar. The LLC allowed me to meet like-minded people who quickly became my friends and made the transition to college a lot easier (plus the Honors RAs were super supportive!). The Honors classes allowed me to have a small-group feel in a big college, and I felt like my professors were interested in me, my success in the course, and my interests. The Honors Program taught me how to advocate for myself and take every opportunity I can, which are skills that I will most definitely use in my future endeavors.”
