Van D. and Barbara B. Fishback Honors College

Looking for something more?

There are advantages in attending a small liberal arts college, such as prestige and personal attention … and there are advantages to attending a large public university, such as a variety of majors, access to research, and an active student life.

The Van D. and Barbara B. Fishback Honors College strives for both, creating an environment where talented, motivated students may combine the best of both ends of the spectrum into a world-class education—at no additional cost.

Honors offers small classes taught by some of SDSU’s most outstanding faculty. Courses are stimulating, challenging, and fun. Students actively engage in writing, discussion, and in-depth exploration of subjects and topics that interest them.

This means that an education from the our college features both breadth and depth. Through Honors general education classes, colloquia, contracted courses, and independent study projects, Honors students receive a well-rounded education of the highest quality.

Combine these experiences with opportunities for research, leadership, travel, and service—along with our dynamic community of faculty and student scholars—to create a value-added education like no other.

For those students looking for something more: Welcome. You’ve found it.
