Undergraduate Honors Program

College of Nursing students have the opportunity to join the UMass Amherst Commonwealth Honors College, by invitation in the freshman year and through an application process after they have begun their Nursing program. The Honors program encourages students to develop broad perspectives and engage in deep analysis through its four-year curriculum, and requires completion of a final Honors project.

Among the recent Honors Nursing projects are a cultural immersion experience in the Dominican Republic, development of a seminar series on complementary alternative therapy, and health teaching with homeless populations.
