Honors SkillsPage address: http://www.mnsu.edu/honors/prospectivestudents/skills.html
The Honors Program at Minnesota State Mankato is more than simply attending classes and completing a research project. What distinguishes this Honors Program curriculum from others throughout the country is its focus on developing key competencies, or skills-oriented learning.
Every class and every activity offered to honors students focuses on developing skills in leadership, research, and global citizenship. Students learn and practice honing these skills together, but they also demonstrate how they have achieved the necessary skill sets through their individual portfolio demonstration projects.
Our faculty believes that students will be more competitive in scholarships and fellowships, graduate schools, and future professions with organized and coherent evidence of their mastery of leadership, research, and global citizenship skills.
