University Honors Program

Careers + Alumni

Honors is about connections

You'll learn through the University Honors Program and your major that relationships are a big part of your success in college. Life after your undergraduate days is no different! We're working in Honors to create an Honors alumni community, both virtually and face to face. We look forward to helping you create and maintain close connections to your fellow Honors students, during college and after graduation. We also look forward to helping you forge connections with our amazing community of Honors alumni, the first of whom graduated with Honors in 1986!

Nowhere better for career preparation

The University Honors Program takes careers seriously. Our mission is to help you develop intellectually, personally, and professionally at the highest possible levels. We do Honors career counseling; we devote much of our Senior Seminar, HNRS 400, to helping you learn how to speak convincingly and movingly about your UWEC Honors education. We can help you with your letters of application and write you letters of recommendation that highlight your particular Honors skills and achievements. 

In addition, UWEC has an outstanding Career Services office that helps you explore your aptitudes, write great resumes, learn to interview successfully, find internships, and search for jobs.

More ways to support and engage with Honors

As we build our Honors alumni network, opportunities to serve and collaborate with Honors students and the University Honors Program will grow! Consider serving as a mentor for an Honors student, conducting mock interviews and career coaching in person or via telephone, or offering an internship during spring break or summer. You could also ask the Honors staff members to distribute ads for job or internship opportunities in your organization; we'd be delighted to send announcements to Honors Program students.
