University Honors


University Honors

University Honors is a selective program that embraces the principles of scholarship consistent with the role of an outstanding research university. Our 3 pillars of excellence promote creativity and innovation, celebrate diversity and global citizenship, and cultivate a culture of contribution. Honors students receive a number of benefits including Honors advising, extracurricular activities, leadership opportunities, engagement with faculty, smaller classes, and preparation for scholarships, graduate, and professional schools.

To successfully complete University Honors, students will complete an Honors capstone project in their final year. As a member of Honors, you will be part of a stimulating learning community that includes other committed students who share the goal of optimizing your experiences both within and beyond the walls of the University of California.
