Honors Program

The University of Cincinnati Honors Scholars Program is an all-university program open to academically talented and motivated students enrolled in any of UC's colleges.

The Honors Scholars Program offers students the opportunity to enhance their college education through unique academic, pre-professional, cultural and social experiences.

For example, Honors Scholars students work closely with faculty in small seminar-based courses. They have the opportunity to study and examine a wide range of subjects including cultural and social issues. The goal of the Honors Scholars Program is to help students reach their potential.

Specifically the program aims to:

  • Provide access to the highest quality academic learning experiences in a cross- and multidisciplinary context
  • Encourage and recognize outstanding intellectual achievement
  • Develop each student's leadership potential
  • Enhance the intellectual and academic life of the university for the benefit of the students
