S8E6: What is the UMaine Honors College experience?

Established in 1935, the University of Maine Honors College is one of the oldest continuously-running honors programs in the U.S. 

Its intellectually-curious students, who are among the top undergraduates at UMaine, explore texts, ideas, the arts and current events through an interdisciplinary lens in an academically rigorous environment. Their class sizes are small and emphasize student engagement and lively discussion. In their senior year, honors students work on a thesis or project that pertains to their major and caters to their passions. 

In this episode of “The Maine Question” podcast, Dean Ellen Weinauer and four students discuss what it’s like to learn and thrive in the Honors College.
