Honors Program

You could be among the small group of exceptional first-year students chosen for the Honors Program. 

As an Honors student, you would enjoy: 

  • Amazing study abroad opportunities and generous support to get there through your travel scholarship.
  • Funding to attend two off-campus cultural events each academic year.  
  • Early class registration to ensure your courses are always available.
  • Special seminars designed by faculty.
  • Opportunities to invite speakers for campus seminars, as well as a variety of dinners, contests, and other events for Honors students only.


With opportunity also comes responsibility, such as:

  • Maintain at least a 3.5 GPA for all four years
  • Study abroad at one of the many locations recommended by Doane. (Remember, your travel scholarship may be applied toward the trip!)
  • Collaborate with other Honors students to design, execute and present an independent research project.

Doane University is an institutional member of the National Collegiate Honors Council.
