FROM OUR DIRECTOR

    MCPHERSON HEADSHOT

Welcome to the Utah Valley University Honors Program! By choosing to join the Honors Program, you have demonstrated a genuine investment in the quality and depth of your undergraduate education. The entire Honors Program staff is here to advise you in your search for excellence. Many students, when asking about participating in Honors, wonder if it's harder; I always answer, "It's not always more work, but it is better work." In a series of small classes with other highly motivated students, you will find true peers willing to be guided by faculty invested in their students' intellectual potential. You will discover in yourself the ability to grapple with texts and ideas that have fascinated the world's great thinkers, writers, artists, and scientists, as well as the courage to try out new and challenging ideas, places and experiences. We look forward to sharing the journey with you.

“In my years at UVU, I've come to understand the importance of being a well rounded student of life. Although I am studying
to be a programmer, I appreciate the arts, humanities, and sciences that surround me, which together give meaning to life.
Had I not been accepted into the honors program, I would not have had these experiences that helped
me see the importance of a well rounded education.”
--Jonathan Adamic, Honors Student

 

"I wanted to thank you for my experience in the Honors Program. It was a strong motivation for me to keep my G.P.A. up,
which undoubtedly helped me get into law school. It also was an opportunity for me to write a very fun thesis,
which was as long as it actually needed to be. Incredibly, my time in the program proved to be more often a stress relief,
as well as a chance to get to know many wonderful people."

--Nathaniel Johnson, Honors Student
