Welcome to the University Honors Program 

This is an exciting time to join the University.  Higher education is in a state of flux--your generation is the most information savvy, globally attuned, and aware of the possibilities and threats to our future as a species.  The Honors Program is designed to empower you to explore all the resources of a comprehensive research university; connect you to the campus community and beyond, and to discover your own path.  We do this by creating the intellectual community and personal attention of a small college of liberal arts and sciences, within a comprehensive research university.

Welcome New Students!

The University Honors Program is proud to welcome students on a journey of self-realization that explores all of one's potential.  Our students are multi-faceted and ambitious about making a difference. They have an intellectual breadth and curiosity; often desire double majors or a couple of minors; have made an impact through service and extra curricular activities in their communities; and dream big.

The Honors Curriculum


University Honors deepens and widens the college experience. We build foundations in multi-faceted thinking through an array of seminar-style classes that fulfil the University Core Curriculum. At the intermediate and advanced level, Honors students deepen their academic experience by independent studies/contracting courses and working on thesis with faculty.
