Commonwealth Honors

Once you’re accepted to Bridgewater State University, you can apply online for the Honors Program. Students with a high school GPA of 3.3 or higher OR an SAT score of 1170 (or ACT score of 24) or higher qualify for Commonwealth Honors. We encourage students who meet at least one of those criteria — or who come very close — to apply! You will also submit a 500-600-word essay.

Departmental Honors

I transferred from Massasoit Community College and immediately joined the biophysics laser lab at BSU. I have developed the skills and background necessary to perform research on prospective anticancer drugs. I have been studying a DNA binding drug using optical tweezers, a scientific instrument used to trap tiny objects with a highly focused laser.
