The Honors Carolina Advantage

It is the University’s way of investing in truly exceptional undergraduate students — providing a remarkable collection of challenges and opportunities inside and outside the classroom.

In the Classroom

Outside the Classroom

Take advantage of opportunities to conduct original research with a faculty mentor; study abroad in cities such as Cape Town, London, Singapore, and Rome; and build personal relationships with professors, fellow scholars, and alumni by participating in special Honors Carolina events.
