General Education Courses

This summer HoneyRock will be offering a variety of courses that meet the General Education requirements of Wheaton College. These courses, which are open to any student, are taught in a modular and intensive format. The sessions include concentrated coursework taught by professors at HoneyRock, in addition to pre-class and post-class work. Courses at HoneyRock are unique: professors will use the outdoors, the communal dynamic, and other activities to enhance learning.
