The Honors Program at UMHB offers students a chance to cultivate their intellectual curiosity and social awareness. The program encourages students to investigate relevant moral and ethical systems and to enhance aesthetic awareness. Through an interdisciplinary approach, the Honors Program also attempts to give students an understanding of the relationships that unite all scholarly disciplines.

The Honors Program encourages students to begin a lifelong journey of understanding who they are and what it means to live a good life. Perhaps the greatest benefit to the honors student is the chance to become a part of a larger community in which academic curiosity is seen as normal and necessary.
