You’re looking for a program where your questions are welcomed. Where discussion is the norm. Where everyone else around you pushes as hard as they can—and expects nothing less of you. You are looking for a program where your intellectual curiosity doesn’t make you a curiosity. Well, you’ve found it. Welcome to Westfield’s Honors Program.
The experience, however, is multilayered. The Honors Program ensures that academically motivated students enjoy intellectually challenging courses and a holistic learning experience. So you’ll find stimulation both inside and outside the classroom. In fact, according to most Honors students, one of the main advantages is being surrounded by others who share your excitement for learning.
Incoming first-year students with combined SAT scores (Critical Reading and Math) of 1150 may be considered for participation in the Honors Program. Other factors that are predictive of academic success may be considered.
Transfer students who graduate from a Commonwealth Honors Program at a community college are guaranteed admission to the program. Other transfer students may contact the Honors Program office (413) 572-8086 for information.
