About the Honors College

UT Tyler Honors College

The Honors College at The University of Texas at Tyler is designed to provide an intellectually rigorous and innovative community for students who love to be challenged by and engage with new ideas, new ways of thinking and unique interdisciplinary opportunities.

No matter your intended major, you will find knowledge doesn't fit easily into discrete categories, but that questions and issues cross interdisciplinary boundaries.

As an Honors College student, you will have the opportunity to talk with outstanding leaders, learn from dedicated scholars, and ask challenging questions. You'll also get the chance to make your own mark through independent research, writing, or creative endeavor. Opportunities may be available for domestic and international travel.

Honors is also about being with other students who like to explore ideas, meeting diverse peers, building meaningful friendships, and getting personal attention from staff and professors.
