Engaged Learning, Honors, and Interdisciplinary Programs


Weber State University has a long history of engaging students in learning both inside and outside the classroom. Engaged learning fosters intellectual and personal growth, critical thinking, problem solving, civic engagement, and professional and career development opportunities. Students engage with faculty members in small groups or one-on-one, for an intellectually challenging experience that is enhanced by professional and real world application of knowledge.

The Office of Undergraduate Research, the Center for Community Engaged Learning, and Honors Program continue to facilitate the engaged learning of WSU students by collaborating with disciplines across colleges. These programs offer engaged learning opportunities in undergraduate research, community engaged learning, and classes that provide a stimulating, creative and supportive learning environment.

Interdisciplinary programs provide students the opportunity to expand their learning across different subject areas, and contribute to a well-rounded educational experience.
