University of Washington Honors Program

Honors Huskies represent a fascinating diversity of professional and personal experiences, with degrees from nearly every major on campus, now living and working all over the world. UW Honors graduates went above and beyond the requirements of their degree programs — forming broader, deeper connections along the way.
