The University Honors Program is a community of students who share a passion for learning and embrace intellectual, creative, and personal challenges as opportunities to grow. The program encourages and supports Honors students' intellectual, creative, and personal growth throughout their undergraduate education by providing challenging coursework, enriching colloquia and seminars, a diverse range of cultural events, and rigorous senior research and scholarship experiences.
With several designated courses in the first two years of study and a research project in the final two years, most students in the University Honors Program engage in a four-year experience that is complemented by excursions to museums, cultural events, and other fun and educational destinations. Our honors community comes together each Friday in the Honors Colloquium.
University Honors Program freshman Ciera Hammond was just awarded The National Collegiate Honors Council's Portz Fellowship for Undergraduate Research. She is the first ever CSUSB student to win the prestigious award, which she will use to support her research in Political Science.
