The UAH Honors College delivers an intimate, elite college experience with no additional cost. We blend a traditional emphasis on arts and sciences, critical thinking, and communication skills with a practical, career-oriented education. We offer you small, inspiring classes that you will love and unparalleled research and career networking opportunities.

The Honors College program is compatible with any major or program of study and requires no extra coursework. You take Honors versions of courses you would already take. The courses aren't typically more work: they're just enriched. Student mentor programs, additional advising, priority registration, special activities, and other benefits are available. If you join the Honors College, you will be eligible for Honors Housing: live in a community of motivated Honors Students who enjoy Honors dedicated activities, study rooms, and common spaces. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and see what life is like for the Honors Students at UAH.

"Honors classes are always more beneficial because the small size allows professors to focus on discussions rather than lectures, and I have typically found discussions to be more thought provoking than lectures."
