The Honors College, established in 2005, is dedicated to enriching the undergraduate academic experience for talented, motivated and well-prepared students. Through the challenging and supportive environment of honors classes and special programming, members of the Honors College find that they are part of an exciting community of talented scholars pursuing academic and intellectual growth. The goal of the Honors College is to help honors students build a broad educational foundation in preparation for studying at the graduate level, establishing a career, and meeting the demands of responsible citizenship.

Membership in the Honors College is compatible with every undergraduate major and program at the University of North Texas. Many honors students elect to participate in the undergraduate research track in addition to enrolling in honors classes.

Whether the student is pursuing a degree in engineering, biology, music performance or any other major at UNT, he or she will want to consider membership in the Honors College. In addition, most honors courses fulfill University Core Curriculum requirements, making Honors College membership even more appealing. Membership in the Honors College is secondary to membership in the college or school of the student’s major, and students in the Honors College can choose from among several levels of participation and recognition.
