North Carolina Wesleyan College offers a select group of students the opportunity to complement their degree program with a series of challenging and rewarding courses. Freshman enrolled in the Roger G. and Gaile Davenport Taylor Honors Program take special freshman courses in composition and humanities. Honor students then take one honors course each semester during their sophomore and junior years. As seniors, students complete an Honors Project in some area of their major interest.
The Honors Program offers students the opportunity to develop a close community of learning and to take courses from some of the best faculty members at the College. Being in the Honors Program does not add to a student’s course load, but it does add variety and depth to her or his college experience. Transcripts of Honors graduates include recognition that they completed the Honors Program. Honors Program students are also given the exclusive opportunity to participate in the "Give A Hand" Mentoring Program. This mentoring program pairs students with a personal mentor who is a member of the College's Board of Trustees, Board of Visitors, faculty or staff.
