The Honors Scholars Program, now the Honors College, completed its 17th full year as a four year program in June 2011. The college's goal is to attract and retain academically talented students to UNCW by offering an array of innovative and challenging activities both in and out of the classroom. We work to create and expand a peer culture of excellence on our campus.
UNCW's Honors College provides opportunities for undergraduates to engage in independent and creative scholarly activity. The Honors College directs the four-year honors curriculum and departmental honors, offers opportunities to develop a global perspective, supports undergraduate research for all UNCW undergraduates, and mentors UNCW students through the application process for national scholarships and fellowships.
