The Honors Program

The Honors Program in the College of Arts and Sciences provides special educational opportunities for academically prepared, highly motivated undergraduate students.

In Honors Program courses, which are limited to about 15 students, undergraduates can forge lasting connections with exceptional faculty and peers. Our courses give students the opportunity to discuss, debate, and exchange ideas in a way not usually possible in a large lecture environment.

In addition, the Honors Program awards Latin honors - cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude - to graduating seniors who have successfully written and defended honors theses.

Honors-qualified students interested in living in a community of their peers have the option of participating in the Honors Residential Academic Program.

While our home in the College of Arts and Sciences reflects our roots in the values and traditions of a liberal arts education, we welcome undergraduates from all colleges and schools on the CU-Boulder campus.
