Program Emphases

The honors program faculty demonstrates its commitment to the program’s mission by the pursuit of these emphases:

The honors program of Wisconsin Lutheran College will:


  1. Introduce students to a rigorous study of the great authors and texts of the Western Christian tradition and promote a vital curiosity about the questions those texts raise.
  2. Equip students with the technical competencies and personal dispositions to nurture their skills as critical readers, writers and thinkers.
  3. Encourage Christians who are critical readers, writers, and thinkers to acquire and refine various habits of thought for responding to significant texts and the questions those texts raise in the context of an interdisciplinary course of study.
  4. Prepare students to demonstrate intellectual dexterity and wisdom as critical readers, writers, and thinkers in their personal lives and professional careers.
