You’ll find Honors students in a variety of disciplines across all colleges at the University of Delaware.  Honors courses are rigorous and allow students more in-depth study of their subject areas.  Honors is more than academics – our students live together in their first year, which sets the foundation for a strong community though their college careers. Our students are engaged in all areas of campus life and through Honors they can take advantage of enrichment opportunities in the form of guest lectures, research opportunities, and excursions regionally and abroad.  To learn more about the Honors College, visit our admissions page
