The Honors Program is an open-enrollment program which provides a rich and challenging experience for motivated undergraduate students. At BYU, an Honors education is not merely a more intensive general education or a more strenuous program in a major. It’s about thinking differently, exploring diverse perspectives, and expanding horizons.
The central focus of the program is the study of great questions. Through coursework, research, writing, and hands-on experiences, students explore interdisciplinary approaches and consider ways in which unexpected connections can be found between different disciplines, leading to a deeper understanding of the questions we seek to answer.
"University Honors" is the highest academic distinction awarded by BYU to students at the undergraduate level.
