About the Honors Program
What You Can Expect
Your Honors Program program is extremely flexible and fits in with any Bachelor’s program at the University of Arizona Global Campus. In fact, the Honors Program offers a self-contained interdisciplinary curriculum that is designed to provide you the opportunity to explore interesting topics regardless of your major. If accepted into the Honors Program, you are jointly enrolled in at least two colleges, that in which you complete your major(s) and the Honors Program.
You will participate in enriched interdisciplinary courses and special co-curricular opportunities specifically designed for academically prepared and motivated students like you. Your Honors Program classes are small, uniquely interactive, and are focused on promoting leadership, innovation, global perspective, and civic responsibility.
You’ll have an opportunity to investigate topics of interest, work on special projects, and actively share your learning process with other students and faculty. Upon graduation, you will have a special Honors Program designation noted on your transcript and diploma, which will demonstrate high levels of motivation and achievement to prospective employers.
What’s Expected of You
You may opt to graduate from the Honors Program either as an Honors Program Scholar or as an Honors Program Fellow.
To graduate from the Honors Program as an Honors Program Scholar, you must successfully complete the three upper-division Honors Program courses. To graduate as an Honors Program Fellow, the most prestigious designation within the Honors Program, you must successfully complete all six Honors Program courses.
In addition, you must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to stay in the Honors Program.
