Professional Experience

The University is dedicated to preparing its students for lives of learning and for the challenges educated citizens will encounter in an increasingly complex and diverse global community. Over 100 programs of international study and cooperative research are available for KU students and faculty at sites throughout the world.

Students interested in using an Experience which will not appear on their transcript for one of their Honors Experience units are required to fill out a Honors Experience Form. To assure that this will count for an Honors Experience unit, please submit the form to Nunemaker Center prior to the actual experience. Contact the Honors Program at (785) 864-4225 or email honors@ku.edu if you have any questions.
