The UACCM Honors Program is accepting new students in spring 2020—with a deadline of January 1 to apply. Designed for students with a passion for academic excellence, the Honors Program provides exclusive learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. 

Here are nine reasons to join the Honors Program: 

Service Learning: Students have the opportunities to apply their classwork in the field and serve the community in some way.

Individual Research: Students can explore their personal interests in a field by producing research and contributing their voice and opinion in a discipline. 

Smaller Class Sizes: With smaller class sizes, students can contribute more in classroom discussion and get more attention from faculty. 

Honors Distinction: When applying for a job or a university, listing admission into the Honors Program can set you apart from other applicants.

Study Abroad Opportunities: Students can learn about cultures and civics of other countries.

Close-Knit Student Community: In the Honors Program, all of the students are committed to learning. These relationships are the kind that can last a lifetime. 

Connect with Faculty: UACCM faculty members are scholars or practitioners, and there’s a lot students can learn from them.

Leadership Training: Being part of a smaller community can allow students more freedom to take charge and get experience at leading a group on academic tasks. 

University Preparation: Think of the experience in the Honors Program as preparation for your bachelor’s degree or later graduate school.
