Great Books Honors

If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.
-C.S. Lewis, “Learning in War-time”

An uncommon honors program requires an uncommon welcome. Honors programs typically aim at telling about all their bells and whistles. At Faulkner University, the Great Books Honors program was established with deep Christian conviction that academic excellence and service should always go together. The Honors program serves students in each academic department at Faulkner by offering an honors track for each discipline.

In the Great Books Honors program, we read, write, think, discuss, and serve with the sense that there are eternal implications to all that we are doing. So, if you too are seeking an uncommon, life-shaping experience, we invite you to consider joining the program and our community of learners.
