The mission of the University of Montevallo Honors Program is to provide intellectually talented students with specially designed academic offerings, co-curricular activities, and recognition.
The academic dimension is composed of two types of honors classes. One type is designed to fulfill requirements in the General Education program. The other type of honors class, intended to supplement the student’s course work, consists of seminars on topics best considered in an interdisciplinary context. Seminars often include guest speakers or involve travel to special events or places.
Upon successful completion of honors courses in each year of attendance at the University, a student may be awarded Honors Certificates and the University Honors Degree. Honors students are recognized for their achievements at special occasions during the academic year. Participants will have notations on their transcripts recognizing their participation in the Honors Program for the purpose of alerting prospective employers and graduate schools to the quality and extent of honors work.
