Magis Honors Program in STEM Approved

Magis Honors Program in STEM Approved
Members of the class of 2023 who entered the University’s new Magis Honors Program in STEM arrived a week earlier than their classmates to participate in a multi-day STEM field experience at the Lacawac Sanctuary.

 After two years of pilot seminars, the University has begun a new Magis Honors Program in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), founded to help students with an interest in STEM research get started early in their college careers. The program consists of a series of seminar courses, ranging from a first-year Writing Science in Literature course to a history course on America’s environment, that students take throughout their four years. Through both individual and group projects, students will gain the intellectual and technical skills to carry out original research and to communicate this research to others.

“It’s so much fun,” said Janice Voltzow Ph.D., a biology professor and one of the founders of the program. “They are so excited about what they’re doing, and there’s an awful lot of sharing of that enthusiasm.”

The program also has a community outreach component where the undergraduates volunteer with local students.
