About The Campuswide Honors Program

The Campuswide Honors Program (CHP) provides talented and successful students with the rigor and personal attention of a selective liberal arts college and the opportunities of a dynamic research university.   It is a place where a select group of students and faculty come together to instruct, challenge, and sustain one another.   It is a community of scholars--one in which development of the mind goes hand-in-hand with the development of the whole person.   It is a place where the faculty--an extraordinary group of respected scientists, artists, musicians, and writers--are passionate about scholarly issues and are also dynamic, concerned teachers.

The goal of the Honors Program is to provide outstanding UCI students with a special honors curriculum consisting of stimulating interdisciplinary classes, close interaction with peers, mentorship by UCI's top faculty, and the opportunity for participation in undergraduate research. Enhanced advising support provides students with assistance in applying for scholarships, internships, graduate/professional schools, education abroad, and relevant work experience. The Program provides a blend of interdisciplinary coursework, benefits, and experiences that maximize the students' opportunities and accomplishments while at UCI, and helps prepare them to be the leaders, researchers, and educators of tomorrow.

The Campuswide Honors Program admitted its first class of almost 100 freshmen in fall 1988. The program now maintains an active roster of over 650 students, freshmen through senior year, representing nearly every major on campus. Our first student graduated in June 1991, our first "class" in June 1992. Many of our students continue their studies after graduation at some of the most prestigious graduate and professional schools in the country.
