The LSA Honors Program is a four-year program that provides an especially rich and challenging set of academic offerings to talented and highly motivated students in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Through special courses, intensive faculty contact, and thoughtful advising, the Honors Program enables students to identify their intellectual interests and to pursue them as deeply and as far as they can. Approximately 500 students will form the class entering Honors this year, arriving from a wide variety of backgrounds and interested in every field of study of LSA, sharing a love of learning and a desire to pursue the life of the mind.
As an Honors student, you have the opportunity to take Honors courses from across LSA’s varied curriculum. Just what makes a course “Honors” depends on the content and the faculty member’s approach to a topic, but all Honors courses promise extensive student-faculty contact and intensive interaction with the best students at the University of Michigan. To find out more about Honors courses, Honors requirements and more, go to Academic Information.
Finally, as an Honors student, you can apply to live in Honors Housing with other students who are just as passionate as you are about learning. As part of the Honors community, you'll share in a wide array of programs and opportunities enriching your Michigan experience.
