Visit us virtually

Welcome

The Honors Program at the University of Kansas is special. We’re sorry that you can’t meet with us in person, but the safety of everyone is paramount while we navigate COVID-19. Until we can resume in-person campus events, we’d like to introduce you to our program virtually — starting with one student in particular.

The video you’ll find below was made by Anna Krause, a current KU Honors student majoring in French, English, and Biology. She created it while participating in KU’s British Summer Institute in 2019. Anna received funding from an Honors Opportunity Award to help support her study abroad experience.

Anna’s work and experience exemplifies what we love about Honors — we strive to ensure students have opportunities to develop interests inside and outside the classroom. To graduate with Honors, students complete a combination of honors courses and [enhanced learning experiences] that prioritize experiences such as research, service learning, and — like in Anna’s case — study abroad.

What could you experience? What could you learn? Talk with us to see if the Honors Program at the University of Kansas can help you launch an extraordinary life.
