Welcome to Barrett, The Honors College

Four Unique Honors Experiences, One College

Barrett students have the unique advantage of experiencing a small, intellectually and socially vibrant environment while having access to the vast resources of the major research university at ASU. Barrett students  simultaneously benefit from being with others of the same intellectual preparation and commitment and enjoy the advantages of a university environment actively engaged in exploring all areas of human interest and concern.

All students who enter ASU through Barrett, The Honors College also enroll in a disciplinary college and pursue one or more of the 275+ available disciplinary majors and concentrations. Their education is the result of the integration of all colleges at ASU, including Barrett, that cultivate the talents and interests of Barrett students and endeavor to meet their changing needs as they develop academically and socially.
