University Honors Program


Eager to reach your full potential as a scholarly, competent, and fulfilled leader?  Apply to join the UHP!  The University Honors Program, or the UHP, encourages students to grow in the intellectual craft of scholarship while experiencing what our director calls real joy in scholarship.  Through cultural and performing arts events, skill-development workshops, travel opportunities, and challenging course work, UHP students develop intellectual curiosity about the world, its wonders and its complexity.  Download our brochure here.

The Kansas State University Honors Program is designed to provide exceptional students with an understanding of contemporary concepts of common and diverse intellectual traditions, as well as discipline-specific knowledge. Our community of scholars will possess global awareness and competence in dealing with an increasingly diverse world, having had educational experiences that emphasize scholarship, critical thinking, and intellectual curiosity. Students in the program will possess superior written and oral communication skills and will become active participants in the lively discourse of today’s world.
