Current Drake Students

Drake undergraduate students from any major are encouraged to take Honors Program courses and complete the Honors Program Track of the Drake Curriculum. Achieving the honorific designation of "University Honors" is something Honors students work towards in addition to completing the Honors Track. 

Many courses are cross-listed in other departments, giving students a chance to experience the small, interdisciplinary, discussion-based atmosphere of Honors courses while still earning credit toward degree requirements.

Honors First-Year Practicum is a one-hour a week introduction to rigor and interdisciplinary nature of the program, but is not required for participation in the Honors Program.

Apply online or meet with Honors Program representatives:

Complete the Honors Program Track declaration form with signature of your primary academic advisor to the Honors Office in Medbury room #206/209, or email
