University Honors Program

Elevate an exceptional education

Curiosity. Connection. Humility.

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 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 honors coursework. We invite our students to demonstrate their commitment to knowledge creation through independent research and creative projects both on- and off-campus. University Honors students explore vital issues, the arts, and the resources of our region, nation, and the world through Honors Forum, Honors Seminars, explorations trips and study abroad, and other high impact opportunities.

It is the goal of the University Honors Program to help students elevate what is already guaranteed to be an exceptional education at NC State University.

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.
