About the Program
The following is general info about UofL Honors (for specifics, see louisville.edu/honors).
Students who demonstrate potential for high levels of achievement and seek a more engaging and challenging college experience find multiple opportunities for academic and personal development in the Honors Program at the University of Louisville. The Honors Program provides students with the best of both worlds in terms of college experience: the intimacy of a small college combined with the vast resources of a national research institution. With smaller classes that are more focused on reading, writing, and discussion, students benefit from greater academic rigor alongside more personalized support.
In addition to small classes, the Honors Program affords students the opportunity to challenge themselves through research, study abroad, and experiential learning. Whether working side-by-side with faculty on cutting edge research projects, exploring international destinations, or serving the local community, Honors students have the chance to participate in unparalleled learning opportunities. Some classes include a service learning component.
There is also Honors housing that may be available for NSE students.
