Challenging Academics in a Close-knit Learning Community

Every year, Azusa Pacific University attracts increasing numbers of the country’s best students seeking a rigorous academic experience grounded in the Christian faith. The university has expanded the institution’s investment in academically-gifted students by establishing the Honors College.

The Honors College telos—its aim, purpose, end—is to educate the next generation of intellectually-gifted Christian leaders, helping them develop the moral and intellectual virtue—the right habits of the heart and of the mind—to become the leaders we hope for in our future.
