The Miami Honors Difference
We are more than a prestigious title, additional requirements, harder classes, and quiet residence halls. Honors at Miami is an educational enhancement to students Miami studies. Increasingly, success after college requires students to possess skills that cannot be obtained in the traditional classroom, so we ask students to pursue learning experiences that help them acquire experience and abilities identified by major employers and educational leaders as crucial for success.
Reach Your Goals
We encourage students to define their goals, develop their interests, and choose challenging educational experiences inside and outside of the classroom that will lead them down the path to personal success.
Gain Real-World Experience
Honors students enhance 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 challenge with support to help students reach their full potential.
With a close-knit student community, active faculty excited about teaching and mentoring, a successful alumni base, honors students connect with lifelong friends, caring mentors, and exceptional opportunities at Miami and beyond. We also offer an Honors Living-Learning Community.
