University Honors Program

For more than 50 years, Seattle University has provided students of high ability and motivation the opportunity to join a small, select learning community dedicated to the study of the great books and great ideas that have shaped the development of our world.

If you are an ambitious, intellectually motivated, and genuinely curious student and you want a highly-challenging approach to a liberal arts education, then the University Honors Program might be right for you. University Honors students have gone on to become Rhodes, Truman, and Fulbright scholars. They have studied all over the world and gained admittance to top graduate programs in a variety of fields.

First-year students interested in applying to the program should visit the University Honors website to learn more about the distinct learning opportunity it affords.
