Honors Core Curriculum


The Honors Core forms the foundation for an Honors education at U-M. Designed specifically for Honors students by innovative faculty, the Honors Core Curriculum provides rigorous, wide-reaching introductory courses across LSA.

Honors Research & Travel Grants

Supplementary funding for Honors students’ activities is made possible by generous donations from our alumni and supporters. These funds are provided to support research for Honors theses, presentations at professional conferences, and international travel.

Honors Classes


Honors allows you to combine the vast resources of a large research university with the kind of personal attention and tight-knit community you might find at a small liberal arts college.

Study Abroad Opportunities

A year or semester spent studying abroad is an enriching experience and we urge all interested students to take advantage of foreign study. The University of Michigan sponsors study-abroad programs at universities in many parts of the world.


Sophomore Honors Award


The Sophomore Honors Award was created to encourage students to take full advantage of the opportunities in the program and to recognize outstanding achievement during the freshman and sophomore years.
