Honors College exists to channel the energies, refine the ideas, and ignite the passions of our remarkable students.
We are a small, selective college within the university that offers an exceptional undergraduate core experience for highly motivated students. 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 a diverse student body, an innovative curriculum taught by outstanding faculty, personalized advising, multiple research and service opportunities, scholarships, priority registration, small class sizes, and special residential arrangements. Consequently, Honors 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.
