The Honors College at UH

Welcome to the Honors College—a vibrant hub of engaging coursework, rich student life, community collaboration, and co-curricular programming at the University of Houston. From study abroad to undergraduate research, from the first-year Human Situation course to the senior honors thesis, students affiliating with the Honors College enjoy the benefits of a small undergraduate college while taking advantage of all that our Tier One research university has to offer.

Almost everyone knows by now that the University of Houston is a Tier One institution, which means that our research and graduate programs have been recognized by the Carnegie Foundation to be of the highest caliber. In addition to its Tier One status, the University and the Honors College have been recognized in a book by the Princeton Review called Colleges That Launch Careers. And in 2016, the Honors College was rated one of the top ten public honors programs in the nation by Public University Press, beating many prestigious flagship universities in the area of honors education. We are proud to be a leading honors institution, and I am extremely proud to serve as dean.

We believe that a top tier education happens not only in the classroom and the library. To have a transformative college experience, students want and need opportunities beyond the classroom: service-learning opportunities; academic, sports, and social clubs; study abroad experiences; mentored research opportunities; interdisciplinary minors and programs that enhance the skills needed for any profession; and support in applying for competitive scholarships, fellowships, and graduate school. Students find all this and more in the Honors College.

As part of a liberal education, all students in the Honors College at the University of Houston take a two-semester great books course called "The Human Situation" during their freshman year. This course is interdisciplinary, team-taught, and helps students hone their critical thinking, writing, and speaking skills, which will serve them in any course of study.
