Are you intellectually curious? Do you enroll in challenging courses? Do you have lofty ambitions and career plans? If so, please consider applying for admission to the University Honors Program (Apply to join the UHP).

Through honors course work, honors students learn from experienced faculty and talented peers, and, in so doing, become members of a stimulating and diverse scholarly community. Through selected co-curricular experiences--such as study abroad, undergraduate research, teaching assistantships, internships, and participation on competition teams--honors students enrich their undergraduate experience and prepare themselves for their future goals.

Through individualized learning experiences, such as faculty-mentored honors projects, honors students tailor their studies to meet distinctive goals and produce tangible expressions of their scholarly interests and academic abilities.  Honors students also receive targeted benefits and privileges which are designed to facilitate engagement and maximize learning.  We are very proud of our honors students and their accomplishments, and we welcome you to consider joining our community.
