Director's Welcome


Honors Program students, prospective students, families, and friends:

Warm greetings from members of the Springfield College Honors Program! We welcomed our first cohort of 27 students in fall 2019. We had an exciting and successful inaugural year, thanks to the efforts of students and faculty, as well as the support of the entire Springfield College community. Our second year will be even more ambitious, with 25 additional students from the class of 2023 and the class of 2024 joining the Honors Program in fall 2020. 

Our goal remains to provide rich, engaging learning experiences, in and out of the classroom, for Honors Program students and for the wider College community.  

To prospective and current students who are interested in our program, I would love to tell you more about our program and our faculty, and to meet with you by video conference. And to the families and friends of our students, please watch us as we grow, and help us by modeling to our students what lifelong learning looks like.

Take care,

Rebecca Lartigue, PhD
Director, Honors Program
Professor of English, Department of Literature, Writing, and Journalism
