The Honors Program at Weber State University

Weber State University’s Honors Program offers you small, challenging and creative courses, as well as opportunities for leadership and social interaction. An “Honors” designation on your transcript and diploma makes you more attractive to employers, graduate schools and professional programs.



The mission of the WSU Honors Program is to provide a welcoming community for intellectually curious, academically adventurous students. 

  • We nurture excellence in this community, regardless of prior academic preparation.
  • We build this community by offering small, creative, rigorous classes; leadership opportunities; and other innovative learning experiences. 
  • We open this community to the university as a whole by organizing events that catalyze far-reaching conversations about significant issues relevant to contemporary society.
