Honors Program

The Honors Program offers talented students to distinguish themselves through the development of critical thinking skills and research experience. It is highly recommended that students start in the Honors Program their freshmen year, but later admission can be discussed with the CALS Academic Affairs Office in Room 116 Agricultural Hall (608-262-3003, undergrads@cals.wisc.edu)
