The Honors Program provides students with opportunities to advance their education through challenge, innovation, and community. Honors is ideal for students wishing to maximize their competitiveness for top-tier graduate programs or employers while at Gallaudet University. We seek out students who have a history of academic accomplishment and are driven to succeed academically and professionally. Students will develop and polish the high-level skills needed to increase competitive appeal for graduate schools and the professional world by working with accomplished professors, sustained engagement with the Honors Community, and enjoy numerous opportunities for funding for academic or professional development. Honors Students complete a more rigorous coursework and a professional-level Honors Capstone to showcase their skills. Students are also invited to take advantage of many other opportunities for personal and professional development on campus and in Washington D.C., including joining on campus organizations, pursuing internships, discovering research opportunities, and so forth.
