About the Program
Honors offers small class settings taught by some of SDSU’s most outstanding faculty. Courses are stimulating, challenging, and fun. Students actively engage in writing, discussion, and in-depth exploration of subjects and topics that interest them. This means that an education from the Honors College features both breadth and depth. Through Honors general education classes, colloquia, contracted honors courses, and independent study projects, Honors students receive a well-rounded education of the highest quality. Combine these experiences with opportunities for research, leadership, travel, and service—along with our dynamic community of faculty and student scholars—to create a value-added education like no other.
