What is the International Honors Program?
Lots of schools have honors programs. They are tough. They require a lot of work. They are limited to high achieving students, of which there are a lot of expectations. And in that way, PLU’s program is no different than others.
There is, however, one key difference. What makes PLU’s program so unique is its interdisciplinary and international focus.
The International Honors Program is a rigorous alternative to the General Education Program at PLU. Rooted in the university's emphasis on liberal arts education, International Honors consists of interdisciplinary courses that explore contemporary issues and their historical foundations through an integrated, multi-national approach.
