Welcome to the University Honors Program
The University Honors program welcomes academically talented students from all majors who seek an enriching college experience. It’s a program about taking on challenges and connecting with SLU’s scholarly community, exemplifying the Jesuit commitment to service, receiving personalized advising and support, and pursuing studies that focus on your individual academic and career interests.
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.
