Honors College

In the Honors College, students are part of a community combining the advantages of a small liberal arts college with the diversity of a comprehensive state university.  The Honors College is comprised of two programs, the Presidential Honors Program and the Honors Degree Program. Students in these programs participate in an extensive academic curriculum including honors sections of core courses, special honors seminars, and honors research projects. Supplementing the challenging academic work that honors students complete in their classes, the Honors College also provides many opportunities for educational and cultural experiences outside of the classroom, such as trips to Bass Performance Hall and the art museums in Fort Worth, the Visiting Scholars Program, and a month-long study abroad program on the Italian Renaissance in Urbino, Italy.

Freshmen students in the Honors College live in the Honors Hall and returning students have the option to live in Honors Hall or make other housing arrangements. The administrative offices, meeting spaces, and honors classrooms are located on the first floor of the Honors Hall, which gives students easy access to Honors academic advising and events.

Fifty Presidential Honors Scholars receive an annual scholarship of $7,000.  A number of  Honors Degree Program participants receive a $4,000-a-year or $1,000-a-year scholarship.
