Honors College

Students in the Honors College are part of an honors community that combines the advantages of a small liberal arts college with the diversity of a comprehensive state university.  The Honors College is comprised of two honors programs, the Presidential Honors Program and the Honors Degree Program. Students in these programs participate in an extensive academic curriculum including honors sections of most core courses, special honors seminars, and special honors research projects. Supplementing the challenging academic work that honors students complete in their classes, the Honors College also provides many opportunities for broad and challenging educational and cultural experiences outside of the classroom, such as trips to Bass Concert Hall and the art museums in Fort Worth, the Visiting Scholars Program, and a four-week study abroad program on the Italian Renaissance in Urbino, Italy. Also, honors students are eligible to live in the honors residence hall. The administrative offices, meeting spaces, and an honors classroom are located on the first floor of the honors hall, which gives students easy access to honors academic advising and academic events.

Fifty Presidential Honors Scholars receive an annual scholarship of $7,000.  Twelve Honors Degree Program participants receive a $4,000-a-year scholarship, and ninety-six Honors Degree Program participants receive a $1000-a-year scholarship.
