The Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College is a branch of FAU, opened in 1999. Claiming to be the first honors college built from the ground up, Wilkes Honors College strives to be the flagship for Honors Colleges throughout the country.
The Wilkes Honors College offers a Liberal Arts education comparable to elite private colleges in the platform of a public institution, through their enthusiastic faculty from varying fields of advanced studies.
Students have the opportunity to work very closely with the faculty, as most of the classes average about 10-12 students. Furthermore, faculty advisors provide a permanent outlet for academic advice, culminating in an "Honors Thesis", an undergraduate project taken on by each student under the supervision of their advisor.
These collaborations have led to many publications of work in various spheres of academia. This, along with a fast-incrasing rate of graduate-school bound undergraduates has set the Wilkes Honors College on the road to nation-wide recognition.
