Honors Program

About the Honors Program

Socrates challenges us with the claim that the unexamined life is not worth living.

Dominican's honors program invites highly motivated, high-achieving students to challenge themselves by living out Socrates’ ideal to the fullest for their entire career at the university and beyond.

Student Testimonial

“Honors seminars have brought to life the motto of Dominican, ‘caritas et veritas’ for me. They have given me a never-ending desire to pursue the truth through constant questioning. And taught me that this truth, whatever it may be, might not be an absolute one, that it might shake the very foundations of my being and perceptions of the world, and that the opposite could also be true.” – Kristine Bonnick ’11, Neuroscience Major
