What will you do with your education?

What will you do with your BYU education?

Do more with your education. As you embark on your university education, the four or more years that you will spend in college can seem like an eternity. However, when you compare it to the decades of work, home life, etc. that follow, it really is a precious time. As such, Honors hopes to help enhance and deepen your BYU experience. We believe in cultivating lifelong learning habits and dispositions that will not only benefit you at college but throughout your life and beyond. Our goal is to instill in every student the desire to never stop learning.

There are few things more pathetic than those who have lost their curiosity and sense of adventure, and who no longer care to learn.
Gordon B. Hinckley

Education shapes not only what we know, but who we are. Here in Honors, we have a broader view of education than just learning facts. We want you to learn how to connect and apply what you learn to build your character and to impact the world around you. These connections will enable you to communicate your ideas not only to those within your major but to a broader public. The world today needs people who can make connections between disciplines and discuss important matters in an educated and civil manner.

If some of your goals include
  • broadening and deepening your educational experience
  • increasing your awareness of disciplines beyond your major
  • exploring questions which develop habits of lifelong learning
  • and developing the intellectual integrity and moral character that define disciple-scholarship

then consider Honors! See Mission Statement.

We are open every weekday from 8 am to 5 pm in 350 MSRB on BYU campus. Or email us at honors@byu.edu or call us at 801-422-5497. We hope to see you soon!

Honors Objective: Write clearly, insightfully, and persuasively in the specialized discourse of your discipline and in the more general “educated public” discourse we use as a society to discuss and deliberate on matters of common interest and importance. (see Learning Outcomes)
