University Honors Program

Southern Methodist University

The University Honors Program is at the heart of SMUís intellectual community.  Students are prepared for the future through a program that centers on the values of a broad-based education in the liberal arts.  The program offers students of all majors the ability to experience academic challenges beyond their major courses, by choosing seven courses that offer an enhanced version of SMUís University Curriculum.  Honors students enjoy intellectual challenges from the Universityís best professors in smaller classes that are discussion-based. 

The University Honors Program extends beyond the classroom to include an upper-class mentoring program, dinners, lectures and a full calendar of events.  Students are also encouraged  to explore their individual interests through special research projects and interdisciplinary studies on  the Dallas campus, at SMU-in-Taos and elsewhere in the United States or abroad.
