Description:
The UCA Honors College is an interdisciplinary program at the University of Central Arkansas. One of the first Honors Colleges (in contrast to numerous Honors Programs) in the country, the UCA Honors College leads to the receipt of a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies. Successful completion of the minor requires a senior thesis or a supplemental senior project such as a performance, exhibit, or other creative work. The Honors program derives its pedagogical underpinnings from the traditional small liberal arts college. It prides itself on small class sizes, intimate teacher/student relationships, and intense study of a variety of interdisciplinary subjects.

History

The program was founded in 1982 by professor of philosophy Dr. Norbert Schedler and was one of the first Honors Colleges in the country. The first class in the spring of 1982 was composed of 60 students with an average ACT score of 26.8 and a very tight budget.<!-- please expand if you know any more history of the honors college -->
