Fulbright Honors

Fulbright Honors

Welcome to the Fulbright College Honors Program. This office of dedicated professionals is committed to providing a comprehensive program of Honors Studies to students with strong academic skills and initiative.


College Honors

The College Honors option is an interdisciplinary honors program designed for students with highest academic and artistic ambition. College Scholars will complete more than one third of their undergraduate curriculum in honors courses, including a four-year scholar’s core, honors colloquia, and research hours. Incoming freshmen, especially those planning post-graduate education such as medical school, law school, or graduate school, are expected to participate in the College Honors Program. 

Departmental Honors

The Departmental Honors option emphasizes directed independent study within the department of the student’s major field of study. Departmental Honors follow the Fulbright College core and must complete at least 12 hours of honors coursework in their undergraduate career. This option is designed for students who do not meet the initial requirements for College Honors option and transfer students with more than 24 hours.
