Pursue the Good, the True, and the Beautiful

Torrey Honors College is the undergraduate honors program at Biola University. A distinctively different path for fulfilling nearly all of Biola’s core education requirements, Torrey Honors brings together curious, sharp thinkers from different majors and backgrounds from all over the world to pursue the Good, the True and the Beautiful.

At Torrey Honors we join a long line of thinkers from Plato and Aristotle to C.S. Lewis who knew that free people require an education that wrestles with ideas rather than removes real debate from the civic arena.

Torrey Honors students read deeply from great books spanning across millennia. They gather with peers in a hand-selected learning community to spend hundreds of hours in discussion, searching out answers to big questions together — all while guided by a faculty mentor. And when they graduate, students enter a community dedicated to lifelong learning and pursuing Christ both personally and vocationally.
