About the Program
In The Honors College we draw on all of the Oakland faculty team - which means that you can access the expertise of an entire comprehensive doctoral/research university. Our classes are small, and our students are leaders on campus as well as outside the university. We support personal excellence and team excellence. A Nobel Prize winner and a national Poet Laureate serve as Honorary Esteemed Fellows of The Honors College, recognizing our support of achievement. We aim to make a difference in your life, and in the lives of others.
We offer a wide range of subjects, from those in the Arts and Social Sciences to those in the Natural and Physical Sciences. The topics you can study come in such a fabulous variety. For example, relating to Literature or to Medicine, to Technology, Theatre and Music, Nursing, Engineering, Business, Languages, Sports and so much more! Faculty propose new and innovative courses every year.
