Explore a diverse community

When you join the University Honors Program, you join a diverse community of motivated Blugolds who want to get the most from their education. You'll be challenged by fascinating and useful Honors courses designed specifically for Honors students — courses that you can't get anywhere else on campus. And often, these are courses that faculty members have been wanting to teach for their entire careers.
