New Mexico's First Honors College

NMSU's Honors College provides motivated undergraduate students with opportunities to enrich their academic programs. In small classes taught by master teachers, honors students engage in lively discussion and collaborative investigation of interdisciplinary topics. Honors courses are challenging, but the individual attention makes the honors experience unique.
