2017 University Honors Program Graduation Celebration

The University Honors Program (UHP) at UC Davis  provides students with an enriched undergraduate education through its interdisciplinary curriculum.  Students work closely with distinguished faculty to create a vibrant community of scholars dedicated to pursuing academic excellence.

We provide the advantages of the small, liberal arts college setting, coupled with the opportunities of a large research university, to UC Davis's highest achieving, highly motivated students. 

To do this, we offer:

  • Honors residence halls to foster community with fellow UHPeers
  • Small, interactive classes with selected Honors faculty
  • Special opportunities to meet campus visitors including Nobel prize winners, political leaders, and best-selling authors
  • Faculty mentorship support
  • Dedicated Honors staff who support and guide you through your undergraduate career
  • Honors-specific programming and events
  • Priority class registration
  • Honors transcript notation
  • Graduate-level library privileges
