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.
As part of Northwestern State University, the Scholars’ College offers the best of both worlds: the small classes and personal attention of a liberal arts college with the resources, opportunities, and tuition of a state university. The curriculum is based on the Great Books program, and provides discussion-based courses and an intellectual community. The faculty offers guidance and support throughout your academic career and beyond. As the state’s only designated honors college, the Scholars’ College offers a unique and challenging curriculum that will prepare you for any graduate program, professional program, or career.
