The mission of the University Honors Program is to provide a transformative liberal learning experience that empowers students to critically engage meaningful problems in the world.
The University Honors Program Core
The curricular core of the UHP is the HON Seminars, which are small, graduate-style, seminars designed to expose students to how multiple disciplines approach and try to solve problems. The other major curricular dimension of the UHP is the Capstone project, which is an independent research project conducted under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The Capstone requires that a student articulate a problem or issue of interest and then use the tools and methods of their discipline in order to make a new discovery.
