ABOUT THE
PROGRAM:
 
The Honors Program at USD is not about courses that move faster and cover more material. It is about developing each student into a person who is passionate about contributing to society and prepared for a rapidly changing world. It is about offering enriched educational opportunities for academically talented and highly motivated students. It is more than 40 years of experience delivering the best education a University has to offer: engaging, stimulating and rewarding!

USD honors students often engage in many additional university programs, including SERVE, AWOL, study away, and undergraduate research.
