University Honors is closed for the summer
and will re-open August 11.
is designed to bring together highly motivated students and dedicated faculty to provide a small university environment within the larger university community. We offer students who are serious about their intellectual and personal growth a variety of special classes enhanced by cultural events, leadership, civic engagement and research opportunities. University Honors (UH) assembles students from across all five colleges at UMD and fosters close meaningful contact between these students, UH faculty, and community leaders.
How will University Honors benefit you?
Learn in University Honors-designated courses which satisfy liberal education requirements. Here, in small classes with Honors faculty and other motivated Honors students, you can experience an active, engaged undergraduate education. UH Students also have priority registration beginning spring semester of their freshman year.
Share living space with other UH students in our dedicated section of the new Ianni Hall (living on the UH floor is not a requirement of the program).
Engage with other high performing students, Duluth community leaders, and faculty in a variety of settings including, dinners, field trips, active classrooms, our “Meet the Professional” series, and other UH special events.
Distinguish yourself by graduating with a degree from University Honors. Less than 2% of UMD undergraduates are accepted into UH. A degree from UH sets you apart from the crowd.

From the Director
In University Honors, we believe tomorrow’s leaders will be those of you who work hard to learn across disciplines (beyond your chosen major) and develop critical thinking, perspective-taking, communication, and creative skills. The UH curriculum is designed to engage you deeply, both in and out of the classroom, in order to help you develop a broad base of knowledge, skills, and connections, which will set you apart both during and after your undergraduate experience.
If you are serious about your education and love thinking and learning, please visit our Admissions page for more information including how to apply.
