Honors Program, University Interdisciplinary Programs
Western’s Honors Program allows students to combine the best of a private liberal arts college experience (small classes, interaction with professors and other students, and the opportunity to work on research and creative activities with faculty) with the advantages of a much larger public institution, including a wide variety of majors, outstanding academic facilities, and numerous extra-curricular options.
Why Consider an Honors Interdisciplinary Studies Minor?
The WWU Honors Program is structured in a way that provides a graduated, on-going experience for students as they engage in increasingly sophisticated work while moving through their Western degree. Students in the Honors Program are eligible for HNRS courses and have the opportunity to undertake extended Honors independent study projects in their major fields.

How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process)
Admission is selective - students apply to join the program through a supplemental application accessed from the Honors Program website. Transfer students or students already enrolled in the university may apply to the program on the bases of academic record, a writing sample, and the recommendation of a university or other faculty member.
Declaration of the minor is done through the Registrar’s minor declaration e-form.
A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors.
