    Council of Honor Societies

    The Le Moyne College Council of Honor Societies is a group whose purpose is to support scholarship by Le Moyne College students at the highest level. The Council of Honor Societies follows standards established by the Association of College Honor Societies (achsnatl.org) to ensure that academic achievement by Le Moyne College students that meets national standards is recognized.

    The Council supports induction ceremonies of disciplinary and college-wide honor societies. It administers a re-grant program for other student groups and organizations. It consolidates information on regional conferences, internships, fellowships and scholarships and makes this information available to all students. Council members also volunteer to serve as Ambassadors on behalf of the College.


    Departmental Honors

    Some departments offer an honors degree to superior students who complete specified requirements in the major field. Departments offering such a program are: biological sciences, business, biochemistry, chemistry, criminology, economics, English, foreign languages and literatures, history, peace and global studies, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious studies and sociology. Department chairs invite qualified applicants to pursue this degree at an appropriate time in their academic program. Departmental honors thus provides a challenge for the student who excels in the major or for the transfer student who enters Le Moyne too late to participate in the Integral Honors Program.

    College-wide standards apply, but each department supplements these with its own regulations. The interested student should seek information from his or her department chair.


    Integral Honors

    The Integral Honors Program is a community of students and faculty from across the campus who share a passion for deep intellectual engagement and the challenges and rewards of scholarly inquiry. Students typically apply to the Integral Honors Program in the spring of their senior year of high school and enter Le Moyne as Integral Honors students in their first semester, but we do have spots available for current students and transfer students. Students from all majors are welcome to become members of the Integral Honors community.
