The Normandy Scholar Program's (NSP) academic focus is the Second World War. While a strong interest in the origins of the War and its multiple aspects is a prerequisite, the Program is in fact much more. According to its alumni, it is also a life-enhancing experience.

The NSP brings together each spring semester about 20 students from different backgrounds and different majors who take the same courses, share the same challenges, travel together in May with the NSP faculty, and form a community of friends whose bonds last a lifetime. Beyond the study of history, the readings, the papers assigned, the guest lectures, the film showings, the meetings with WWII combatants and Holocaust survivors, and the opportunity to visit WWII sites in Europe, perhaps the most striking feature of the program is the personal development and intellectual growth it fosters.
