The Alderson Broaddus University Honors Program provides multidisciplinary learning, encouraging students to connect the focus of their major and career aspirations to one of our exciting course topics.
With an affinity towards pop culture topics, the AB Honors Program allows students to investigate real-world issues such as climate change, digital identity, or crime in the work world. Their studies allow them to analyze graphic novels, television shows, film, music, and other platforms of expression.
In addition to engaging field trips and guest speakers, the AB Honors program offers graduate school experience, hands-on student-led research, small class sizes, and lots of free discussions.
