The Advanced Honors Program encourages students with outstanding academic records to actively engage in the intellectually challenging environment of the University Honors College. Advanced Honors Scholars have the unique opportunity to do advanced, graduate-level research while working closely with faculty who are experts in their fields. Advanced Honors Scholars carry out research projects that culminate in senior theses of publication quality. The program provides a stimulating and diverse academic curriculum; honors course requirements ensure in-depth coverage in the major field, while experiential course requirements provide students an opportunity to transfer the knowledge they are gaining in the classroom to practical settings. Advanced Honors Scholars can also apply for funding to participate in research projects, to study abroad, and to help defray the costs of other co-curricular activities. As a result, Advanced Honors Scholars develop into some of the university’s most intellectually independent and ambitious students.
The Advanced Honors Program is an integral part of the University Honors College, which has graduated some of UB’s finest students—true pioneers who have gone on to excel at top graduate and professional programs and carve out remarkable careers.
We invite transfer students to apply to the Advanced Honors Program as they are completing their UB application. Applications deadlines are October 1st and March 1st.
