  • Community engagement
  • Global studies
  • Leadership
  • Research and creative arts
Honors seminars are the backbone of the UHP curriculum and are critical to each student's experience and success. Therefore, faculty from across UC's colleges are engaged in teaching honors seminars. Faculty from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals!
