Welcome to the University Honors Program
Raise Your Expectations
From Our Students
Are you looking to challenge yourself and want to become a better problem solver in the world? The University Honors Programs are designed to foster outstanding students by providing a small community of intellectually-challenging peers with extra faculty attention and the tools to learn how to think critically and make connections between disciplines and then how to dive deep into today’s problems, issues and cutting edge research challenges.
The Programs ask that students be alive to the “life of the mind” and pushes them to raise the expectations they have for themselves and their education – taking learning outside the four walls of the classroom with active, engaged learning. Courses are mainly seminar style, where students are expected to come to the table with their own ideas and to think deeper about the issues discussed. Students will become intrinsically more involved in their own learning experience, develop heightened critical awareness and independent thinking skills, and be encouraged to participate in research or creative works at the university and in the community.
