Honors College students come from a wide range of academic and cultural backgrounds, reflecting the diversity of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s student body.

The Honors College faculty, many of whom have received prestigious teaching awards, are among UWM’s best. Because the Honors College enrolls a limited number of students, Honors faculty and staff can give each student extraordinary individual attention, inside and outside the classroom.

The Honors College offers small seminars, enabling Honors students to work closely with these top scholar-teachers. The seminars provide a forum for discussion as well as intensive practice in extended analysis, close reading, and effective writing and speaking. In addition to seminars, the Honors College offers several non-seminar options appropriate to the student’s major.
