The Honors College at Florida International University is a small community of outstanding students, dedicated scholars, and committed teachers who work together in an atmosphere usually associated with small private colleges, using the resources of a major state university.
The Honors College provides a broad trans-disciplinary curriculum of unique courses and the chance to work closely with expert faculty and distinguished members of the larger community. Preparedness for graduate or professional study and for employment are significantly enhanced by Honors-only research and study abroad programs, as well as networking and internship opportunities. The Honors experience includes living-learning communities, an emphasis on peer and faculty mentoring, community service, national conference participation, and a variety of active student organizations.
Students may pursue any major available at the University and at the same time complete the Honors curriculum. The curriculum emphasizes critical, integrative, and creative thinking; group and independent research; oral presentation; and close contact between students and faculty.
Committed to excellence, professors in the Honors College are carefully selected for their accomplishments as both teachers and scholars.
In addition to the interdisciplinary curriculum, Honors College students enjoy many other benefits:
