A Christian Honors College in Southern California
Torrey Honors College is the undergraduate college honors program at Biola University. We bring together students with different backgrounds from all over the world in pursuit of the Good, the True and the Beautiful.
At Torrey Honors College, students read deeply from some of the best books ever written. They gather with close friends 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.
