About the William Penn Honors Program

William Penn Honors ProgramGeorge Fox’s William Penn Honors Program is an alternative liberal arts general education program for undergraduate students set to launch in the fall of 2014. Modeled on the Socratic tutorial style, it is designed to hone students’ critical thinking skills by exposing them to classical texts and using discussion as the primary mode of instruction. Graduates of the program will be prepared to engage their culture meaningfully at the deepest levels – and they will be able to do so in a humble and gracious manner from an orthodox Christian perspective.
