Since fall semester 2013, a group of History Department faculty have been working together to create a new course for the University Honors program. The new honors course will be paired and integrated with an existing honors philosophy course on ethics, and a central feature will be examining the historical development of moral frameworks and ethical debates across a variety of cultures and eras.

The Honors Program is open to academically qualified students in any of Marquette’s seven colleges — Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Communication, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences or Nursing. Historically, we have been fortunate to receive many outstanding applications. This makes the admissions process highly selective, as we've drawn from pools of very well qualified students. The application deadline for Fall 2014 was February 15 and decisions will be mailed by April 1.
Miksang Contemplative Photography was introduced to Honors Program students in 2006 by Miriam Hall, a contemplative arts teacher based in Madison, Wisconsin.

the 5th Annual Miksang Contemplative Photography Class Closing Show. On display were the wonderful and miraculous perceptions of a semester-long exploration of Mindfulness in Photography.
