The Liberal Arts Honors experience in the Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at the University of Texas at Dallas is a cohort program for students majoring in select disciplines in the School of Arts and Humanities, the School of Economics, Political, and Policy Sciences, and the School of Interdisciplinary Studies.

Applications are open to incoming freshmen who have been admitted to UT Dallas in one of the majors listed below. Applicants must agree to the Liberal Arts Honors Creed:

“I seek to study my chosen discipline and the ideas that connect the liberal arts broadly understood. I enjoy studying the arts, humanities, and social sciences. I willingly participate in topics beyond my individual interests or discipline to support the success of the cohort and its intellectual community. I thrive with reading assignments that extend my existing knowledge base. I relish the opportunity to reflect on ideas and articulate a response through my own writing. I choose an undergraduate experience that will expect me to discuss ideas with my peers and faculty in and out of the classroom.”
