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 includes concentrated coursework taught by professors at HoneyRock, in addition to pre-class and post-class work.
