Liberal Arts Honors

The Liberal Arts Honors Program gives some of the university's best students tools they need to change the world.

With small classes, top professors, individualized coursework, and an active learning community, Liberal Arts Honors broadens students’ worldview and prepares them to lead. Students call this program the best of both worlds—the personal attention of a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major research institution.

Since 1990 Liberal Arts Honors has provided gifted students with special opportunities for enriched learning and recognition at every level of their academic careers. Almost 500 students, including 120 freshmen, participate in the program each year.

In addition to taking honors coursework focusing on reasoning, research, and writing, Liberal Arts Honors students are encouraged to study abroad and become global citizens. Nearly all participate in internships to help them build professional networks, and define themselves.

Prospective students considering attending The University of Texas at Austin with a commitment to a Liberal Arts education are encouraged to visit campus, visit us, and attend a prospective student information session to experience first hand all that the Liberal Arts Honors Program has to offer!
