Join Urban Honors

You’re always known in Urban Honors. Small classes, dedicated housing, organized activities, involved professors, and a thesis mentored by two faculty members create a small liberal arts college atmosphere within a large urban institution. It’s a tight-knit community interested in academic challenge, where students can tailor their individual education experience and come together with highly motivated peers to think, question, study, challenge and discover new ideas. Are you an urban academic? Apply by December 1st for priority consideration for Fall 2016.
