University Honors Program

Elevate an exceptional education

Curiosity. Connection. Humility.

We invite you to cultivate and apply your passions as a member of the University Honors Program. Our students come from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of interests, skills, and talents. Once they are engaged in the program, our students make their mark on NC State and the communities beyond through leadership, research, exploration, and problem-solving.

We challenge academically motivated students just like you to investigate important contemporary questions and ideas by participating in advanced and innovative courses such as the HON seminars. We invite our students to demonstrate their commitment to knowledge creation through independent research and creative projects on- and off-campus. University Honors students explore vital issues, the arts, and the resources of our region, nation, and the world through our Honors Forum, Explorations trips, and study abroad opportunities.

It is the goal of the University Honors Program to help students cultivate the skills and curiosity necessary to become active and engaged citizens who make lasting positive impacts in their communities now and into the future.

The UHP has pushed me to seek out meaningful experiences that are out of my comfort zone and to be more aware of my impact as an individual. I cannot imagine my college career without it.
