The Miami Honors Difference
We are more than a prestigious title, additional requirements, harder classes, and a quiet residence hall. Honors at Miami is a cutting-edge educational program. Increasingly, success after college requires students to possess skills that cannot be obtained in the traditional classroom, so we have cast aside the traditional expectations and developed a program that will take students beyond the classroom to acquire the experience and abilities identified by major employers and educational leaders as crucial for success.
Reach Your Goals
We will work with students to define their goals,develop their interests, and put together a challenging educational plan that will transform their future vision into reality. Instead of prescribing a strict set of requirements, we give honors students the freedom to choose in-class and out-of-class learning experiences that will lead them down the path to personal success.
Gain Real-World Experience
Honors students customize their general education requirements to include stimulating learning experiences such as interactive honors seminars, professional internships, study abroad, research, and community service projects.
We cater to students who are looking to push themselves as scholars and grow as individuals. We know that sometimes "more challenge" is interpreted as "a larger quantity" of work rather than a "higher level" of work, and we take steps to ensure that this is not the case for our students. We balance the right level of challenge with the right amount of support to get a formula guaranteed to help students reach their full potential.
With a close-knit student community, active faculty excited about teaching and mentoring, a successful alumni base, and strong ties to major employers-- honors students connect with lifelong friends, caring mentors, and exceptional opportunities at Miami and beyond.
