Since its founding in 1979, the University of Michigan-Flint Honors Program has offered qualified students the opportunity to enhance their education in the challenging and rewarding atmosphere of small, enriched core classes with close faculty guidance and one-on-one learning and research partnerships with specialists in their field.

The Honors Program is designed to promote education across the disciplines in an environment that emphasizes a high degree of literacy, critical thinking and humanistic and scientific inquiry and to encourage a high level of academic achievement and scholarly research.

Programs in Honors


The University of Michigan-Flint offers two programs in Honors:

  • The four-year University Honors Program . This program, designed for entering freshmen, consists of a Freshman/Sophomore phase and a Junior/Senior phase, parallels the regular university non-honors curriculum from freshman through senior years.
  • The Junior/Senior transfer University Honors Program . This program, designed for transfer students and students who do not apply to the Honors Program until the end of their sophomore year, parallels the second phase of the four-year Honors Program and includes similar requirements.

Note: Honors courses are fully complementary to the regular non-honors degree program. With few exceptions, students in the Honors Program are not required to complete additional or “add-on” courses – that is, courses taken in addition to the regular requirements for graduation. In the Freshman/Sophomore phase of the program, the core Honors courses also fulfill general education requirements (ENG 111 , ENG 112 , humanities, and social sciences). In the Junior/Senior phase of the program, Honors courses fulfill the requirements for upper-level courses (those numbered 300 or higher) in the major area of concentration.
