“I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program, so that had a big influence on my decision...I would also get to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I would gain that real world experience right off the bat. Add in the proximity to Boston and the connections you can make at all of the great hospitals there, you can't get any better than that.”

Honors Program FAQ's
The following are frequently asked questions about the Honors Program:
DOES THE CURRY COLLEGE HONORS PROGRAM PARTICIPATE AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL?
Yes indeed. Curry is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council, and Curry Honors faculty have contributed as presenters at its conventions.

WHAT DO THE HONORS ALUMNI/AE SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE IN THE PROGRAM?
Our Honors alumni/ae are openly enthusiastic about their positive experiences. Many say that choosing to participate was one of the most significant choices they have made for themselves. The Honors Scholar Program is a superb preparation for graduate school, and we are proud to claim that 100% of Scholar graduates who chose to attend graduate schools were accepted, and no wonder. Graduate admission committees have one core question: does this candidate present evidence that he or she is capable of graduate level study? An Honors Scholar Thesis and a strong GPA makes the answer easy!
Employers also regard achievement in the Honors Scholar Program very highly. Not only is it indication of a vigorous intellect, but it also indicates that a potential employee has the proven ability to undertake a large project and to persevere over four semester to its successful conclusion. This process is consistent with long-term achievement in the business world, and is a strong credential for students who choose to enter a career at graduation. And for graduates who choose both to be gainfully employed and to continue their educations on a continuing education basis, the Scholar Program is a double advantage!
HOW DOES THE HONORS SCHOLAR PROGRAM RELATE TO GENERAL EDUCATION AND MY MAJOR?
Many of the courses that you will take in Honors can fulfill General Education or Major requirement courses. For students entering Honors in their first year, GE 1000 is required for all students and the course you take will also fulfill the first requirement for Honors. Additionally, the courses you take for Research Methods, Honors Electives, and your Honors Proposal and Project can also double count with your major or General Education requirements allowing you lots of flexibility in the choices you make for courses each semester.
