Through engagement and innovation, the University Honors Program transcends educational boundaries so that you can broaden horizons and achieve your goals.
To be successful in a knowledge based economy, individuals need not only a strong understanding of discipline specific theories and content, but also proficiency in managing intellectual capital. In other words, your future career entails critical thinking, analyzing trends to find solutions, self-assessment of strength and weaknesses and managing interpersonal complexities. Acquiring these skills does take place exclusively in a classroom - so why should your education?
As a program representing undergraduate students in every college at NIU, the University Honors Program's role is to mentor students and connect them with impactful experiences, so they graduate with the ability to adapt to life's ever-changing conditions.
