Faith & Reason Honors Program applications due 10/7

The aim of this program is to provide scholarship-level students with a unique opportunity to explore the “big questions” in life, in a small cohort of students, guided by senior-level faculty at DSU.  Its inspiration and organization come from the encyclical letter on this topic written by John Paul II.

Membership in the Faith & Reason Honors Program is by invitation and application only.  Membership is limited to fifteen (15) students in each academic class.

Get application information or contact Lore Mcfadden-Westwood with questions at lore.mcfadden@desales.edu or ext. 1244.
