The University Honors Program provides a selected group of highly qualified students with a unique educational experience. With small classes and opportunities to work closely with distinguished faculty and advisors, the University Honors Program offers students the best of a small college experience alongside the opportunities afforded by a comprehensive university setting. It unites the committed student and faculty member in a learning relationship in which each has the highest expectations of the other. Students will be immersed in the learning process and therefore must have both the ability and willingness to do intense and often self-directed intellectual work as well as a desire to make the most of the opportunities available in the University.
Available within the University Honors Program are three alternatives designed to meet the varying needs of students.
Students who successfully complete the requirements of the University Honors Program will receive a Certificate and an annotation on their transcript which marks the graduate as a person of intellectual accomplishment, one who has demonstrated a disciplined curiosity and dedication to the pursuit of knowledge.
