University Honors and Leadership (UHL) is a multidisciplinary cohort program consisting of 27 credit hours of coursework to be completed over four years. The UHL courses satisfy most of the UC Denver general core curriculum requirements and can, therefore, be completed in tandem with any of the four-year undergraduate degree programs offered at UC Denver.
Within the program, students are given the opportunity to pursue a traditional honors experience through the Academic Honors track or to focus on leadership education through the Leadership Studies track. All students have a common first year experience (UHL Core). The second and third years of the UHL program offer courses designed specifically for the Academic Honors and Leadership Studies tracks. In the fourth year, UHL students come together again for a culminating two-semester capstone research seminar.
UHL courses are interdisciplinary and are designed to encourage students to develop a complex and broad-based intellectual approach to the subject matter.
