The Honors Program at the University of Washington is an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates. Students can pursue Honors as a general education track, as an in-depth program within their majors, or as a combination of the two. Students may apply to the Program as new freshmen, at the end of their first year, or once they've selected a major.
