The Principia Consortium represents a diverse group of small liberal arts colleges and universities whose Honors programs emphasize intellectual and cultural enrichment for students enrolled in them. A principal purpose for the Principia Consortium is to create and support a unique " Honors at Glasgow" International Studies program. The University of Glasgow, founded in 1451 and internationally recognized institution with prestigious programs in the sciences and humanities, in Glasgow, Scotland, has agreed to create special courses such as The Scottish Enlightenment: Ideas and Influences and other special study and cultural opportunities for the Honors students who are a part of the Principia Consortium.
The Scottish Enlightenment: Ideas and Influences course aims to introduce students to the rich intellectual and cultural heritage of Scotland and its lasting influence on world culture and contemporary thought. It is a compulsory course designed to complement the different choices available to Consortium students who study honors at Glasgow and is taught by academics from a variety of disciplines at the University – including Natural History, Philosophy, Politics, Economics, Natural Science, Literature, Medicine and the Arts.
In addition to the Scottish Enlightenment course, students will register for 2-3 more courses during the semester at Glasgow. In addition to having access to any available course at the University, there are also several unique courses available to Principia Consortium students.
