Honors Courses

Pitt Honors courses cut across boundaries. 

Experience topics in completely new ways: frame things in deeper historical context, read primary sources to draw conclusions for yourself, or examine your career through your favorite TV show. Every small-group course challenges you to reshape your thinking, with more hands-on discovery and in-depth discussion. 

We're always innovating new courses with the University's top professors. Get the most up-to-date list and complete descriptions
