Established in 1987 as the state’s only designated honors college, Scholars’ College offers students the opportunity to pursue their academic and personal goals in a supportive atmosphere. Our core curriculum combines great books-based courses with courses in mathematics and sciences to provide students with a strong foundation for their more focused study in one of our concentrations or in a traditional major.

Scholars’ offers low student to teacher ratio and liberal arts style teaching: strong mentoring by faculty, courses that welcome an exchange of ideas and viewpoints, and a commitment to helping students succeed. Scholars’ courses are open to any NSU student and can add an extra dimension to their curriculum that can really set the individual student’s academic work apart.
