What is Honors?

At UTB, students in the College of Liberal Arts will have the opportunity to enhance their major area of study by participating in the Honors Program. The Program offers talented students an enhanced academic experience by providing smaller classes led by outstanding faculty who emphasize active experimentation, research, and performance. Honors students take classes with other motivated, high-achieving students, enjoy special opportunities for experiential learning and study abroad, and earn a more competitive diploma with an honors program designation. Honors programs and colleges are common at universities across the United States and are an integral part of all UT schools. Learn more about honors programs from the National Collegiate Honors Council.
