The WHC’s four-year curriculum is centered on the traditional disciplines in the liberal arts and sciences, with an emphasis on critical thinking, independent study, community-based internships, and interdisciplinary programs. The WHC is in a period of rapid growth, with 690 honors students and 42 full-time honors faculty members. FAU is among the most ethnically diverse universities in the United States, and the WHC has a diverse student body, faculty and staff. We value diversity, and are committed to advancing equity and inclusion.
