Honors College

Honors Vision Statement

The Honors College is committed to extending opportunities for achievement in undergraduate education to the best students across the University. The College works toward this goal by promoting a supportive and academically and culturally diverse environment in which students can pursue excellence in research, creative work, community service, and personal and professional development. By creating a center for academic excellence, the Honors College not only fosters the development of the next generation of academic and community leaders, but also advances the University's broader mission of improving the level of education for all students. In keeping with this broader educational mission, the Honors College houses the Center for Service Learning, which is dedicated to promoting experiential, problem-based research and pedagogy for all students in the University.

Honors Affiliations

The UT Arlington Honors College is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council and the regional Great Plains Honors Council.

Standards for Admission

The Honors College is dedicated to creating a student body with broad interests, varied talents, and diverse cultural backgrounds. Admission is competitive. Entering freshman Honors applicants (those with fewer than 30 college hours) must have either a score of 1200 on the SAT (combined Critical Reading and Math) or a score of 27 on the ACT, or have graduated in the top ten percent of their high school class. Continuing UT Arlington and transfer Honors applicants (those with more than 30 college hours) must have an overall undergraduate GPA of 3.35. All applicants are required also to submit a résumé and an essay, both of which are reviewed in conjunction with quantitative metrics for admissions decisions. For additional information and applications materials, see the Honors College website: https://www.uta.edu/honors/apply/entry.php.

Requirements for Completing an Honors Degree

Honors degrees are granted in the disciplines of the University's eight undergraduate schools and colleges--Business; Education and Health Professions; Engineering; Liberal Arts; Nursing and Health Innovation; Science; Social Work; University Studies--as well as programs in Architecture and Interdisciplinary Studies. To graduate with an Honors degree, a student must be a member of the Honors College in good standing, have an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher, and complete the degree requirements in an academic major.

The Honors degree requires 24 hours, and the curriculum has two complementary components: coursework and the Senior Project. Depending on their program, all students typically take 21 hours of Honors-designated or contract courses, which are intended to augment the undergraduate classroom experience while fulfilling requirements in general education or an academic major. The Senior Project is intended to encourage learning beyond the traditional undergraduate classroom--intellectually, professionally, and/or geographically--and the range of projects is designed to make the Honors curriculum flexible enough to be adapted to each student's academic, career, and personal goals. Although a culminating requirement for the Honors degree, the Senior Project is intended to be less a final experience than a point of departure in a student's lifelong journey toward intellectual accomplishment, citizenship, and personal fulfillment.

Honors Coursework

www.uta.edu/honors/announcements/

Honors courses satisfy Honors, departmental, college, and University requirements. The Honors College provides departmental advisors with equivalency/substitution information.

Honors students may earn Honors credit for non-Honors courses taught by full-time faculty, subject to the terms of the Honors Course Contract. To receive Honors credit, the student must complete regular course requirements with a grade of A or B, as well as an independent Honors assignment as agreed upon by the instructor and the student.

Senior Project Options

Each major has up to four options for an Honors Senior Project:

  • Thesis or creative project
  • Semester or more of study abroad
  • Community service learning project
  • Internship

The Honors College works closely with undergraduate programs across campus to determine which senior projects are best for their majors, and not all options will be permitted by all academic units. Students interested in Honors are therefore encouraged to contact an Honors advisor about rules for the Senior Project in their particular field of study.

All four options require an approved proposal, a substantial written product, and an oral presentation at the Honors Research Symposium every fall and spring semester.

The flexibility of the Honors requirements makes it essential that students maintain close contact with both their departmental mentor and advisor and the Honors advising staff. Students must meet with an Honors advisor during each of their first three years, but are strongly encouraged to meet with the advising staff on a regular basis, preferably once per semester.

Probation Policy

http://www.uta.edu/honors/advising/

Honors students whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.2 will be placed on probation. They must meet as soon as possible with an Honors advisor and are required to restore their GPA back to 3.2 or higher in the following semester.

Honors College Programs and Services

Honors Study Abroad Program

http://www.uta.edu/honors/abroad/

The Honors College Study Abroad Program offers short-term opportunities for students to acquire new knowledge and understanding of the people, events, movements, ideas, and products of cultures other than their own; to link historical events and developments with those of the twenty-first century; and to understand the contributions of other peoples and regions to American institutions and culture. Rigorous instruction and intensive on-site learning in countries as diverse as Ireland, Scotland, Italy, France, the Czech Republic, Greece, England, and Costa Rica are hallmarks of the Honors study abroad experience. Scholarships are available from both the Honors College and the Office of International Studies (http://studyabroad.uta.edu/). (Note: the Honors College Study Abroad Program typically involves short-term travel and as such cannot be used for the study abroad option for the Senior Project, although credits from the program may be used to meet the coursework requirement for the Honors degree.)

The AP Summer Institute (APSI)

http://www.uta.edu/apsi/

The Honors College at UT Arlington, in conjunction with the College Board, annually presents the AP Summer Institute.1 Each year more than 600 new and experienced middle and high school teachers receive invaluable training from College Board-certified AP and Pre-AP instructors to prepare them to teach AP courses.
