Designed for students of high academic abilities, the UNK Honors Program offers an exciting experience in the liberal arts tradition.
Cutting-edge classes encourage active engagement in class discussion, and increase opportunities for in-depth intellectual exploration.

- use, in writing or multimedia, the forms of reference, the materials, and the ideas of specific academic areas in the manners of discourse appropriate to particular disciplines.
