You'll take honors sections of general education and other lower-division courses, many of which come together to form innovative honors learning communities.

Like all Denit honors courses, these courses:

  • are small and selective
  • focus on learning by doing and discussing
  • are staffed by the University’s best educators.

You'll participate in:

  • field trips
  • events with outside speakers and experts
  • relevant and important projects.

Before you graduate, be sure you've fulfilled your honors requirements.
