University Honors Program

The University Honors Program (UHP) at Plymouth State is a modern honors program that reflects PSU’s innovative approach to education. The UHP emphasizes enrichment experiences outside of the classroom, with project work determined by the interests and passions of the students themselves. It’s hands-on, interactive​ and meant to further enhance the college experience in a meaningful way for our most high-achieving students.
