A Welcome from the Director of the Honors College
Welcome to the website of the Honors College at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Here you will find information about the Honors College and the wonderful opportunities it presents our students.
The Honors College fosters a community in which high-achieving students experience the best educational practices. We offer an exciting curriculum with devoted instructors who teach small, interactive seminars and team-taught classes. Honors students engage in mentored research, have personalized advising, and they have the option to study abroad. Our students also interact with faculty through our many co-curricular events, and they can elect to live on the Honors floor of a residence hall. Through these and other high-impact practices, Honors students receive the benefits of a small liberal arts college in addition to the opportunities presented by a comprehensive university.
We are proud of our Honors graduates. They are from all four of our major colleges––Letters and Science, Nursing, Business, and Education and Human Services––and they are routinely hired by top employers and accepted by excellent professional and graduate programs. And the educational practices of the Honors College are enhanced by the interaction of current students with our alumni.
I invite you to navigate our website and see the many ways in which we carry out our dedication to student success. I invite you also to come visit the Honors College at the heart of campus in the beautiful Oviatt House. If you have any questions about the Honors College, please do not hesitate to contact us.
