At UM, talented students can choose among a number of Honors Programs

  • The General Honors Program
  • Departmental Honors
  • Learning Committees

  • Each blends rigorous coursework with the opportunity to work closely with faculty, and, in some cases, enjoy a community of learners.

    Through the General Honors Program, outstanding undergraduates get the opportunity to develop their full potential through academically challenging coursework and other special programs. Students in the honors program choose from approximately 200 courses and sections each semester in all of UM’s schools and colleges.  Another option is to pursue a departmental honors program.

    The honors program offers:

  • Small, seminar-style classes
  • An emphasis on interactive learning and discussion
  • The opportunity to work with a faculty mentor on research projects through the Honors Summer Research Program.
  • The chance to take advantage of our highly selective dual-degree programs,  in which incoming freshman complete undergraduate and graduate degrees in selected majors
  • Social and cultural events hosted by the Honors’ Student Association
