Honors program

Welcome to the Honors Program at the University of North Carolina Asheville!

The Honors Program provides a rich curriculum for motivated students who seek to understand themselves and make a difference in the world. Together, students and faculty form a community of caring, dedicated, and enthusiastic scholars. Opportunities available to Honors students include travel in the United States and abroad, meeting distinguished campus visitors, receiving tickets to concerts and cultural events, attending lectures and informal gatherings, and forging strong relationships with talented professors.

Engaged in scholarship, campus life, and the greater Asheville community, Honors students value education and strive to create a better society, one where every life may flourish. If you are a self-motivated learner who understands the value of rigorous classes and are willing to give your time and talents to a greater cause, we invite you to apply to the UNC Asheville Honors Program. Should you have any questions or want to know more about the opportunities we afford, please feel free to contact us.
