International Honors Program

28 semester hours

The International Honors Program (IHON) provides a select group of entering first-year students a challenging and creative alternative to the General Education Program, which reflects PLU’s unique mission and emphasis upon the liberal arts. The program fulfills 24 semester hours of General Education due to the interdisciplinary nature of the program. Accordingly, students who have satisfactorily completed the Honors Program receive credit for the following: Creative Expression (4); Examining Self and Society (4); Exploring Values and Worldviews (4); Interpreting Text (4); Global Engagement (4); The Academic Study of Religion (4).

International Honors students must complete the remaining semester hours of the General Education Program prior to graduation from the University: First-Year Experience Program: FYEP 101 (4); FYEP 102 (4); Fitness and Wellness (2); Quantitative Reasoning (4); and Engaging the Natural World (4). Students must also complete the senior Culminating Experience requirement (1-4).
