About the Honors College

The Honors College plays a central role in UNLV’s educational mission. It is a selective undergraduate college that offers a unique liberal arts and sciences experience for high-achieving and highly motivated students. Coupled with the extensive research and cultural opportunities of a large urban university, the Honors College offers an exceptional value in higher education.

The Honors College is an educational partner with the “discipline” colleges of the University in which Honors students pursue their academic majors. The combination of a central Honors intellectual core and specialized learning in a major discipline helps develop graduates who are fully prepared to succeed in graduate and professional schools and in rewarding careers.

Honors College is distinguished by an interdisciplinary and diverse student body, an innovative curriculum taught by outstanding faculty, personalized advising, multiple research, service and leadership opportunities, scholarships, priority registration, small class sizes, and special residential arrangements. Consequently, the College attracts excellent students from Nevada, across the United States and around the globe, joining dedicated faculty and staff to form a unique learning community supporting educational innovation and achievement.
