With an emphasis on experiential learning, the UHP engages the top 7% of University of Cincinnati undergraduate students in curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities. Students are provided with exceptional learning opportunities through which they can take full advantage of their college experience and develop academically, professionally and personally.
The University Honors Program enriches the educational experience of these academically talented and motivated students through honors seminars and experiences, which provide students with opportunities for experiential, interdisciplinary, reflective and integrative learning.
In particular, honors students have the opportunity to focus on:
Honors seminars allow honors students to broaden their intellectual horizons regardless of the discipline in which they are majoring. Honors seminars mesh with general education requirements so students can graduate from University Honors without completing extra courses.
Students may also fulfill honors requirements through experiential learning. Honors experiential learning projects provide students with the opportunity to guide their own learning and pursue their passions.
UHP academic advisors guide and coach students in integrating their experiences and in developing their own visions for their futures. UHP advisors serve as mentors, academic coaches, and general "go-to" resources for students.
