Saint Louis University

Welcome to the University Honors Program


Our Mission
The Honors Program at Saint Louis University engages intellectually curious and academically successful students in a community oriented towards the Jesuit ideals of holistic learning, academic rigor, and community engagement. Through a combination of individually tailored curricula, experiential learning opportunities, and developmental guidance and mentorship, the Honors Program prepares students to become citizens who engage in the process of inquiry and apply their knowledge in service to society.

Holistic Learning
These goals are accomplished through a holistic learning model that has built-in opportunities for special honors-only course sections and smaller, seminar-style classes. Honors students are also encouraged to engage in experiential learning through internships, independent research projects and study abroad semesters.

Fits Any Major
The University Honors program fits with any academic or career path. Its graduates go on to study in professional schools (such as medicine or law) or graduate programs in their disciplines. A number of Honors students also successfully compete for post-graduate scholarships and fellowships such as the Truman, Marshall and Rhodes scholarships and the Fulbright Fellowships.
