Honors College offers a more personalized education

Open to talented and motivated students in every major, the Honors College offers the personalized education of a small liberal arts college without sacrificing the unique opportunities available at a major research university.

Honors seminars typically have fewer than 15 students, and many honors students participate in UWM’s undergraduate research program, working side-by-side with global experts in their fields. The Honors College provides academic advising and support services that include a writing coach who can help students craft admissions statements for graduate, law and medical school.

Successful completion of Honors College requirements culminates in an honors degree, a mark of distinction which lets prospective employers and graduate and professional schools know that the student has maintained a consistent record of excellence.
