Indiana University of Pennsylvania Robert E. Cook Honors College Summer Honors Program for High School Students

 

Overview

Conducted at the Honors College of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Summer Honors Program enables rising high school juniors and seniors (and particularly able rising sophomores) to live and study in a university setting. In the morning, students attend a specialized course in a discipline such as physics, journalism or forensic science. Afternoons are devoted to a core course in which boys and girls develop critical thinking skills through group discussions, writing and presentations. In this interdisciplinary core course, pupils further develop their critical-thinking skills in the process of analyzing arguments and participating in group discussions, writing assignments and group presentations.
