Students studying

Honors classes are specifically designed to encourage students to engage in high-level thinking through intensive classroom discussion, small, collaborative work groups and intensive research projects.

Honors College faculty will help facilitate your success every step of the way. You’ll have opportunities to take classes taught by some of UNT’s brightest faculty in a variety of disciplines, such as:

“I transferred to UNT in Fall 2016. I wanted to be in the Honors College for the rigor and added depth to my studies. I want to be a therapist, and being in the Honors College is enabling me to explore more details of my career path earlier.”
