Academics

The University of Alabama Honors College celebrates academic excellence within a larger university framework. Rather than offering specific degrees, the Honors College serves as an enhancement to UA’s undergraduate curriculum. In the spirit of our pillar of innovative scholarship, we offer a wide variety of Honors courses that are on the edge of pedagogical research and are limited to only Honors students.

We have developed our Honors College requirements in a way that makes dovetailing Honors courses with your major coursework a straightforward process. The vast majority of our Honors courses meet core curriculum or major requirements, so Honors students simply engage in an Honors version of a normal undergraduate plan of study. Honors students also have the benefit of priority registration which allows them pick their ideal schedule.
