The Honors Program

Welcome to Honors

The Honors Program at the University of Kentucky will provide opportunities for students to take challenging classes in many disciplines across the diversity of colleges at UK. While students will take Honors courses, the real benefit to being in Honors is the opportunity for a range of experiential learning. Students will be expected to participate in two Honors Experiences, which may take the form of Education Abroad, Research and Scholarship projects, Community Service, or other approved activities.
