Thank You for Your Support of our Students

The Honors College offers our Honors students the opportunities to enhance their MU education while earning their degree. Honors students are required to earn 25 Honors credits as part of the required 120 credits for degree completion.

If you have questions about our requirements, the Honors by Contract option or the thesis process, please feel free to contact the Honors College Director, Dr. Charlton Wolfgang at or Administrative Assistant, Kereah Keller at
