You will be challenged. You will be fascinated. You will learn in ways you've never imagined.

There is no single honors curriculum for Helen P. Denit Honors Program scholars. At UB, you can customize your academic experience through your selection of honors and enhanced courses. You should be able to find classes in the general education curriculum and in your major that provide honors credit.

When you are registering for classes, visit this page to look for honors and enhanced courses that count toward honors credit. If you don't see an honors class that interests you, work with a professor to plan an honors project in your special area of interest.

Honors Courses

In some special cases, a course may be designated as an honors course. To enroll in an honors course, you must:

  • have an application on file (unless you're an incoming pre-designated honors freshman enrolling in an honors learning community)
  • be in good standing in the honors program
  • contact your academic adviser for permission.

See the schedule of courses.


My favorite honors course was Global Business Environment with Prof. Sriram. The course only had nine students, and all were serious about their work. We shared diverse perspectives, as did he. He has lived and traveled and taught in many different countries and that makes a huge difference.
