Undergraduate Honors Program

The University Honors Program (UHP) serves all undergraduate honors students at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, aiding them in their creation of an enriched, interdisciplinary educational experience. 

UHP students in the Carlson School of Management take part in a range of honors experiences, including a wide array of honors courses and seminars. Honors students also engage in undergraduate research. Carlson's Honors Research Assistant (HRA) program provides an opportunity for sophomore- and junior-level undergraduates to work directly with faculty on a piece of their current business-related research. To graduate with Latin Honors, honors students complete an individual research project, or thesis, under the guidance of a faculty mentor by the end of their senior year.

For required UHP forms, including the Thesis Proposal Form and the Thesis Completion Form, as well as for information on submitting your thesis, please see UHP's honors thesis page.

The University Honors Program is located in 390 Northrop. Students apply to the central University Honors Program (UHP) and complete honors requirements as outlined by UHP. Visit the UHP office or call 612-624-5522 for more information.

Honors Research Assistant Program

The Honors Research Assistant Program is an opportunity for Carlson School faculty to work with high-achieving undergraduate students. Faculty, based upon their interests of research and study, design business-related research projects involving students. A key requirement of the program is that students work with faculty directly and conduct research.
