Why Become An Honors Student? Open Close

The Honors Program brings high-achieving students together in a sequence of dedicated courses and challenges them to learn in a supportive community. The Honors Program is home to students from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Ohio, Virginia, and many other states. These students develop global perspectives that prepare them to embrace difference and change even as they value their own home cultures.

Honors students serve the Honors Program by participating in the Honors Advisory Council and by attending Honors events, including volunteer activities designed to serve the university and greater community, throughout the school year. The Honors Program’s commitment to service asks that each student give back to the community, while the academic standards of the Honors curriculum prepare students for careers in science, medicine, psychology, social work, law enforcement, safety, the arts, and the business and academic worlds.

Honors students regularly present at professional and academic conferences, undertake independent research projects, travel domestically and abroad, and complete internships and summer programs in our local community and at universities across the nation.

Our graduates have been accepted into numerous postgraduate programs including medical school at OU, OSU, and Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine; Law School at OU and the University of Houston; PhD programs at the University of North Texas, the University of Texas at Austin, Binghamton University, and the University of Pittsburgh; and Masters programs at Southeastern, OU, Oklahoma City University, the University of North Texas, James Madison University, and Syracuse University. Recent graduates have also gone on to professional programs in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Veterinary Science, and Pharmacy. Our graduates teach in public and higher education, hold positions in accounting firms, banks, and businesses, and serve in law enforcement and the military.
