Honors Program Information

The Honors Program brings students and faculty together in a community committed to inquiry and discussion. It is designed for students in any major who are highly motivated and intellectually curious. The program offers a series of interdisciplinary seminars while supporting student independent research and experiential learning. The program culminates in the Honors Thesis or Creative Project, which can be completed through a variety of approaches.  Successful defense of the thesis/project before the Honors Council grants the student the title of University Honors Scholar, the highest academic recognition bestowed by UMF.  Seminars are typically conducted in the Honors House, which contains seminar rooms, quiet study and meeting space, a private student office with desk and computer, a kitchen, and the Honors Office. The Honors House also opens onto a lovely back deck and yard with seating for use in the warmer months. Honors students have access to the Center from 7:00 am until 12 midnight seven days per week during the fall and spring semesters.

Students who graduated in the top ten percent of their high school class, have a strong background in college-preparatory courses, and meet other criteria are invited into the  program from the Admission Office and Honors Director.
