College doesn’t get any better than this

As a student in UNT's Honors College, you’ll have the best of both worlds.

Living Small

You'll be part of an enthusiastic community of scholars from many disciplines. You'll learn and excel with the attention and one-of-a-kind opportunities that you would normally find only at a small private college.

Living Large

You'll also benefit from the advantages of a public research university and Dallas-Fort Worth's largest Honors College: outstanding faculty, advanced facilities, nationally recognized degree programs, career-building internships, publishing and research opportunities, affordability, global partnerships and study abroad.

Honors College Benefits

The heart of the Honors College is in the classroom, where accomplished faculty scholars lead talented students toward the highest levels of learning. Honors students may choose to take any combination of Honors classes, non-Honors classes and classes in their major, as long as at least one Honors course is completed successfully each academic year.

You can expect stimulating discussion and personal attention from some of UNT's most accomplished faculty members in Honors-only classes, which average just 25 students each. You will receive personal academic advising from an Honors College-dedicated advisor, as well as priority registration for classes.

Many Honors courses satisfy UNT's core course requirements and are taken in place of regular courses. The Honors College also offers opportunities for you to acquire research skills, engage in research with a faculty member and write an Honors thesis with the guidance of a faculty mentor.
