On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, we welcome you to the University Honors Program at California State University, Stanislaus. Our mission is to deliver an engaging education that offers our students the knowledge and skills to succeed in their careers and in society. We strive to offer our students an accessible, hands-on learning experience that empowers people of all ages and backgrounds to transform their lives and realize their potential. Accordingly, we seek to maintain an environment dedicated to mentorship with smaller class sizes and our Capstone Research Project.

With the Honors Capstone Project, students have the chance to craft a research project or produce a scholarly/ creative work in any field of interest chosen. Students will need to plan ahead for the classes heading up to the Capstone project. For reference, please see our Honors course checklist on our advising page.  With our course pathway as well as professor mentoring program, students are able to design, publish, and present their research in the University Honors Program Journal and the annual Capstone Conference by their senior year.
