UT Tyler Honors Program

An Engaged Community for Intellectual Curiosity and Academic Opportunity

The UT Tyler Honors Program provides specialized content and programming for high-achieving and intellectually curious students at our university. Academically, the program emphasizes small, unique courses with engaged faculty and rigorous undergraduate research. The Honors Program is made up of a diverse, motivated community of students that reflect the population and people of the East Texas region. We seek out and encourage intellectual curiosity, academic opportunity, and community engagement.

Students who complete the Honors Program will earn a special Honors designation on their final transcript. This distinction will reflect each student's enriched studies and accomplishments as a UT Tyler undergraduate. Because of their diverse and enhanced collegiate experience, graduates of the Honors Program are among the most sought-after by employers and graduate schools.
