scientia pictureThe Journal of the Honors Program at Marywood University

Scientia is published annually to honor the achievements of students who have completed the requirements of the program and are graduating with the Citation in Honors.

The Honors Program at Marywood University provides you with opportunities to expand on the traditional curriculum and work closely with faculty, all of which culminates in the Honors thesis. The Honors thesis reflects the essence of a Marywood University education and the best of honors learning: a blending of the liberal arts and major programs, close collaboration between students and faculty, and advancement of study in the form of research. 

Scientia is distributed on campus and catalogued in the Marywood University Library.

Program Testimonials

“Small classes allowed for more individual attention from professors and, even more importantly, more open discussion amongst the class. We all felt comfortable voicing our thoughts and ideas and testing out theories. Also, the added rigor in honors courses allows participants to delve deeper into the given area of study than in traditional courses.”
