PSU’s bachelor’s programs are designed to combine hands-on learning with rigorous classroom work, but we don’t stop there. Our heralded University Studies program values the big picture: well-rounded individuals with strong communication and critical thinking skills and a clear sense of their role in society and humanity. For our most dedicated students, we have the University Honors Program. All courses are reading-, writing- and research intensive. They’re also incomparably rewarding. University Honors students have the opportunity to live and study among other high-achieving students.
