University Honors Program
In the University Honors Program you’ll join equally ambitious peers on an intellectual journey that’s been kicked up a notch. Honors students enjoy small class sizes and close collaboration with award-winning professors who are as personable as they are brilliant.
Clubs & Organizations
UNH students are active members in clubs and professional organizations where they get to dial up networking skills, make employment
connections, learn from industry pros and more. Whatever your interest, we have a club or organization that’s right for you. Here are just a few:
Ambitious students like to take deeper dives into topics of interest. UNH’s Washington Center Program sets students up with semester-long internships in Washington, DC-based government agencies, multinational corporations, nonprofits, think tanks and other organizations. And through Semester in the City, you can live in Boston and work for a social change organization.
A whopping 79% of UNH students complete at least one internship (that’s 19% higher than the national average) working for organizations from the Boston Celtics to Big Four accounting firms.

Psychology & Justice Studies
“I applied to the UNH Washington Center internship program and ended up working for the U.S. Marshals Service. I knew I would make really great connections if I decided to go into federal law enforcement, and what better place to be than Washington D.C.? It was the best thing I have done through UNH to date.”
Communications & Psychology
"The most worthwhile experiences I've had at UNH have been the ones where I've challenged myself. I came here thinking I'd never be a leader; now I'm happy to say I proved myself wrong. UNH showed me how growth happens outside of your comfort zone – that's a lesson that will stay with me for life."
