Students in the School of Humanities and Sciences excel academically, pursuing challenging upper-level courses in their major and minor areas of study and undertaking research and honors projects that reflect their commitment to learning and their desire to push the knowledge frontier in a wide variety of disciplines.
We recognize and celebrate students’ academic commitment and achievement by inducting students into disciplinary honor societies. These honor societies provide students with a connection to the discipline and to scholars in the field beyond Ithaca College. Membership in these societies is one way that students can demonstrate to others the high level of academic excellence they have attained.
Awards and Grants
We also recognize students’ dedication by awarding prizes based on academic excellence and by offering competitive grants to support students who undertake special academic projects. Some of these opportunities are offered at the School level, but most are offered by the departments within the School. Awards and grants attest to the academic accomplishments of our students.
