Murr, Advisor) UNIVERSITY HONORS PROGRAM GRADUATES AND SCHOLARS The University Honors Program provides opportunities to meet the needs of intellectually talented and highly motivated students. At the core of the program is a series of honors classes taught by outstanding faculty, in which learning is based on personalized and group interaction, with emphasis being placed on critical thinking and effective communication. Students who participate in the program may earn recognition in one of two forms: the Honors Certificate, which requires 18 hours of honors credit, or the University Honors Degree, requiring 30 hours of honors credits in specified subject areas. Students may also select to carry out individualized research, culminating in the Honors Senior Thesis. Entering freshmen must have graduated in the top 15 percent of their high school class or have achieved a superior score on the SAT or ACT. A 3.3 cumulative grade point average is the criterion for admitting current UTEP or transfer students.
