The Honors College is committed to UNCW's strategic goal of supporting students becoming global citizens. We offer the Honors Global Citizen Recognition to honors students who demonstrate active engagement with global issues, foreign language competency, and study abroad. In addition, each year we offer "honors international splashes"- opportunities to take honors seminars that involve short-term travel abroad. We also have an honors semester at University of Swansea (Wales) every spring.
