The University Honors College (UHC) encourages curiosity and rewards creativity, offering a small college environment with the resources and opportunities of Oregon’s leading public research university. Small, interactive classes, typically limited to 12 or 20 students, are taught by the university’s top professors. Your experience will also go beyond the classroom, with opportunities to engage in hands-on learning, research and a senior thesis project in the topic of your choice. The UHC is one of only a handful of degree-granting honors colleges in the United States, you’ll graduate with the Honors Baccalaureate, Oregon State’s most prestigious undergraduate degree.
