The Honors Program at Bucknell University is designed to encourage intellectual independence and to recognize academic excellence.

Many academic departments and programs of the University offer programs of departmental honors for students majoring in those areas of study. Typical programs involve independent study under the supervision of an adviser, the completion of an honors thesis or a creative project, and an oral examination by a faculty committee. Some departments require participation in special honors seminars.

Students who successfully complete the Honors Program will graduate with honors, a distinction noted at graduation and printed on their transcripts. Honors graduates have reported that completing an honors thesis was one of their most valuable learning experiences at Bucknell, especially so for those who subsequently undertook graduate studies.
