Welcome to the St. Cloud State University Honors Program!
St. Cloud State University’s Honors Program is a highly selective interdisciplinary program that provides the liberal arts (general education) portion of a student’s bachelor’s degree. With more than 2,000 freshmen entering St. Cloud State University each fall, around 150 freshman appointments are available in the University Honors Program.
Through participation in the University Honors Program you will find a learning community that is intellectually rigorous and personally and culturally enriching, one that will foster your learning and discovery through independent and collaborative inquiry. The University Honors Program offers small classes (average 13 students). Your honors courses will challenge you to connect the classroom with the larger world by broadening your social and cultural experiences and promoting civic responsibility, leadership development and community and campus involvement.
It is designed to appeal specifically to intellectually curious and motivated students. Courses feature unique subject matter and focus on experiential and integrated learning, discussion, writing, and collaborative projects. Honors students are active participants in their education as they research, explore, and collaborate with Honors faculty.
