Honors College Overview


Students at the University Honors College can pursue any Bachelor's degree at UAA. Acceptance into the Honors College will help you elevate your education by giving you access to small, seminar-style courses taught by some of UAA's most enthusiastic faculty. You will have the chance to explore a single book of enduring significance like Lord of the Rings, Jane Eyre, Ishmael, or the Book of Genesis. In our sophomore seminar you will research important social issues such as climate change, justice and inequality, and substance abuse. You will get involved in community service with your fellow honors students, and finish off your honors experience with a major project or thesis under the direction of a faculty mentor.
