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.
Students may apply to the Honors Program during their senior year in high school or during their first year at Marquette. New freshmen applications to the Honors Program are reviewed on a pooled, competitive basis. The application deadline for Fall 2013 was February 15 and decisions were mailed on March 15.
On Friday, April 19, the Honors Program hosted a special visit opportunity for students admitted to the University Honors Program for Fall 2013. Students from all over the country were treated to a full-immersion experience and a day in the life of an honors program student at Marquette.
Miksang Contemplative Photography was introduced to Honors Program students in 2006 by Miriam Hall, a contemplative arts teacher based in Madison, Wisconsin.
The Marquette University Honors Program presented
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.
