Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
The Honors Program at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) provides opportunities for high-performing students to participate in a more challenging and stimulating intellectual experience. Honors Program courses provide an enhanced educational experience through work with primary documents, the inclusion of multiple disciplines, collaborative work and a deeper engagement with course material.
Students in the Honors Program have the following unique opportunities:
The Honors Program is housed in the 9th Street Historic Park, where students can utilize the computer lab, the kitchen, and the common areas. The Program also hosts regular social events, where individuals can get to know their peers and form friendships with other members of the Honors community. In addition, MSU Denver Honors Program students will be able to attend Undergraduate Research Conferences such as the Western Regional Honors Conference with little to no cost to them. With faculty in most major departments and colleges on campus, the community is widespread, and finding an advisor who is a member of Honors faculty is easy.
I truly appreciate being around like-minded students who strive to achieve goals set beyond the standard status. There are so many resources and opportunities in the Honors Program, as well as a caring support staff and an eclectic group of fellow students. If you desire the most from your education at MSU Denver, then the Honors Program is waiting for you!
The Honors Program is like my family. Between the social events, deep philosophical and scientific conversations, the many diverse backgrounds and majors that are found in the Honors students, and how welcoming everyone is, it is clear to see why this community continues to expand. The interdisciplinary nature of the courses means that everyone can find one that is right for them, and the discussion-based classes make it so the subject matter is shown in a whole new light! Join the Honors Program if you want to be elevated to new heights and find some of your closest friends.
