University Honors Program

Create your own Honors experience

At UW-Eau Claire, you'll have the chance to find your own exciting path through the Honors Program. Choose from a wide variety of excellent courses only offered in Honors, get personal attention and advising from dedicated Honors faculty and staff, and become a key part of a vibrant community of Honors Program students. Our goal? To create opportunities that will help you develop intellectually, personally, and professionally.

"The UW-Eau Claire Honors Program is a place where talent meets opportunity. We seek students from all communities who are determined not just to succeed, but to excel. Students are encouraged to set their goals high and to pursue them with dedication. As program leaders, we collaborate with the university and the community to create learning opportunities that fully support our highly motivated, high achieving students. Honors students have strong 4-year graduation rates, participate often in research and internships, regularly qualify for top graduate schools and immediate professional employment, and have a great time interacting with fellow Honors students, staff, and faculty in a challenging but friendly learning environment." 
  -David Jones, Interim Director, University Honors Program

Immerse yourself in extraordinary courses

Your experiences in Honors will be as multi-faceted as you make them, but the heart of the program are our courses – Honors colloquia and electives – that are specifically designed for Honors and available only to Honors students. Many new Honors courses are created every semester, offering a variety that can compete with the course lists of Honors programs at much larger institutions. They're an opportunity to dive into wildly different subjects while surrounded by other Honors students from different majors who offer new perspectives.

Honors is Community

The weekly "Meals with Honors" discussion series, group dinners in the Honors Living Learning Community, multi-course meals at the director’s house, impromptu faculty-hosted home-cooked meals and course discussions...can you tell there's lots of food involved? The Honors Program offers great courses and other academic and professional opportunities, but it also strives to nurture a close community outside of the classroom.
