Honors Program

Borrowing from Oscar Wilde, do you love learning for learning's sake?
If you do, then the Marietta Honors Program is for you.

As part of the program, you'll take courses that explore a variety of subjects—everything from Renaissance drama to Ethics in the workplace. You'll also have opportunities to participate in cultural events ranging from the sublime—Shakespeare in Stratford, Canada—to the wonderfully ridiculous—"Bat Boy: The Musical" in Pittsburgh.

And the Senior Honors Program allows qualified seniors to specialize in their chosen field by working with faculty members on a senior thesis, for many a first step in work they will do either in their professional lives or in graduate school.

So, I'd like to welcome you to the Honors Program at Marietta College webpage! We know that those of you who will be using this will be on campus, in your homes, or in different states all over the country—perhaps, indeed, in other countries.

Therefore, we have tried to create a webpage that will be useful to as many people as possible. Here you will find information about the program, about our students and their accomplishments, and about the events that we enjoy.

Associate Professor of Biology
