While you choose one of our top-ranked bachelor’s degrees to develop career-defining expertise in the arts, sciences, and humanities, as an Honors College student you’ll, wrestle with important questions that shape the future of humanity.

You’ll learn to lead from great leaders. You’ll read and discuss some of the best books ever written. You’ll learn to use next-generation technologies to supercharge a vibrant life of the mind and spirit. And you’ll create something new and put it out into the world. Something great. Like you.
