The University Honors Program Promise:

Honors at IOWA enriches the undergraduate experience by cultivating intellectual curiosity and practical skill through challenging coursework, creative engagement, and experiential learning to nurture a deeper understanding of one's discipline and self.

Are you a student who loves to learn, is curious about the world, and is ready to try something new? Join Honors at Iowa because:

  • we engage and challenge our students through seminar-style classes that give them a broad and varied knowledge base,
  • we enable our students to engage in experiential learning through participating in undergraduate research, study abroad, internships, and more,
  • and we help them with their self-discovery process through the personal guidance, community, and many other opportunities (some quite unique) that we offer as part of membership.
