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.
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
To graduate from the Honors Program, you must successfully complete the three Honors Program courses. You must also document 15 hours of participation in co-curricular events, including those offered through the Honors Program and ones presented by academic clubs and organizations at UAGC. For that participation, Honors students receive one PLA (Prior Learning Assessment) credit at no additional cost.
You must also maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to remain in the Honors Program.
About Your Honors Program Experience
You’ll find generally small class sizes that meet in a format that emphasizes discussion and participation. Your Honors Program courses emphasize critical thinking and service learning, and there is a great deal of student and faculty interaction. Upon acceptance into the Honors Program, you will also be granted access to the Honors Learning Community, a space in Canvas where you can meet and greet faculty and peers, engage in discussions, and learn about upcoming Honors events. Your Honors Program experience as a whole is intended to foster the skills you will need to be a leader in your career and community.
