Study Abroad

Students who seek to be challenged by an exceptional educational experience and want to focus their studies efficiently should apply to the College of Education and Health Professions (COEHP) Honors Program of the University of Arkansas. The program creates and supports an academic environment of intellectual stimulation and provides an integrated and demanding curriculum. The rewards are immense: high academic achievement, an honors degree (Summa, Magna or Cum Laude) on your transcript, recognition at commencement, and the satisfaction that you faced the challenge.
