Students majoring in the departments and programs listed below may apply to earn departmental Honors in place of, or in addition to, University Honors. Why do it? Departmental Honors programs make it possible for students to do Honors work in their major fields. Like the University Honors Program, departmental Honors programs enable students to pursue a truly outstanding education and set themselves apart from the crowd. Many more departmental Honors programs are in development at UWEC.
