About the University Honors Program

What is the University Honors Program? The University Honors Program provides an enriched curriculum and special opportunities for exceptional, high-achieving students. Each year, freshmen who are admitted into this program attend the University Honors Colloquium, a weekly forum that features stimulating lectures by distinguished faculty as well as informative presentations from directors of academic programs.  As they work to meet their liberal studies requirements, University Honors students then have the chance to take small, honors-only courses and special topic seminars with some of the university’s best researchers and teachers.  With its emphasis on small classes taught by top faculty, this program provides the atmosphere of a small liberal arts college within a large research university.
