Palm Beach Atlantic University

The Frederick M.  Supper Honors Program exists to establish a community of scholars.  This community, consisting of faculty and students, encourages, challenges, and supports one another in the endeavor to seek wisdom.  Honors students share a genuine passion for intellectual contemplation and discussion, and members of this community provide leadership for the entire student body. 

The primary goal of the Honors Program is to encourage students to develop a thoughtful and insightful Christian worldview.  The study of a variety of ideas and concepts provides a coherent frame of reference for all thought and action.  Recognizing that one’s worldview provides the basis for values and decisions, an honors education is intended to produce servant-leaders who glorify God in thought, word, and deed.

The Honors Program seeks to accomplish its aims through a focus on the primary sources of the Great Conversation.  The books, the speeches, the works of music, art, and architecture, the films, and the ideas of human civilization come together to form the great conversation.  This conversation addresses timeless questions and issues that continue to shape our worldviews.  The Honors Program initiates students into the Great Conversation so they can discover its wisdom, equipping them to become better scholars, better leaders, better employees, better citizens, and better Christians. 

The wisdom of the Great Conversation enables students to live the examined life and to facilitate character formation.  Graduates are prepared to carry out the Greatest Commandment – to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength” and to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:30-31) – in their vocations as a result of the formation of a mature Christian character.
