Honors Program

The Honors Program is one of the most exciting and prestigious programs on campus. It provides opportunities for academically talented & motivated students to study within a wide array of fields.

The WPU Honors Program provides a challenging and supportive academic environment for students to study, conduct research and exchange ideas.

The Honors Program encourages you, as the student, to blaze your own trail. Alongside a dynamic faculty, you can explore topics that promote intellectual discovery and development and most importantly – interest you!

  • National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR)
    Many honors students have the privilege to conduct research with faculty in their respective fields and present their work at regional and national conferences, such as the National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR).

WPU Honors Biology students presented their research at the 2016 NCUR. They presented important research concerning PCB levels in Crabtree Creek in Wake Co.

“The WPU honors program offers students the unique opportunity to learn from our faculty while working alongside them in their respective fields.”
