Students who seek to be challenged by an exceptional educational experience and want to focus their studies efficiently should apply to the College of Education and Health Professions (COEHP) Honors Program of the University of Arkansas. The program creates and supports an academic environment of intellectual stimulation and provides an integrated and demanding curriculum.

  • Mentoring relationship with talented faculty through independent research
  • Special academic counseling
  • Priority registration
  • Small, in-depth classes
  • Increased confidence and skill in writing
  • Honors housing
  • Latin designation on diploma and transcript of Summa, Magna or Cum Laude
  • Enhanced career opportunities
  • Increased advantages for graduate or professional school applicants
