Current Global Honors Scholars

Global Honors Scholars Program Details

Your fully-funded educational experiences as a Global Honors Scholar will include:

An honors retreat— “Setting Your Course.” Gather with your cohort for a weekend away from campus to build friendships, worship and prepare mentally and spiritually for the coming year. Each year the retreat includes a signature event such as this year’s team-building sail out of Gloucester harbor on the historic schooner, Adventure.

Honors seminars 
Year One: Honor and identity—explore how to engage global issues with Christ-centered honor. (One year, four credits)
Year Two: Calling and vocation—consider the meaning of calling and the role of faith in vocation.

Cross-cultural outings within the region—joining with other cultures in worship and fellowship.

One international trip with a focus on leadership and service. Possible trips include: a mission trip to places like Guatemala, Nicaragua or India; traveling with the College President to a major city such as Paris, London or Hong Kong; or an expert-guided tour of Israel. 

An international internship with a leading international service organization. 

Cultural activities in the culture-rich City of Boston and the surrounding area. Outings may include: Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Symphony Orchestra or the North Shore Music Theater’s production of A Christmas Carol.

Renown scholars in the classroom whose visits allow students to discuss research, faith and journeys of accomplishment. Current visitors include theologian N.T. Wright, Harvard’s Charles Bigelow Professor of Education Nancy Hill and oncologist Dr. Ken Bishop.
