Integrated Studies: Freshman honors program
At UC Davis, first-year students build on learning opportunities like the Integrated Studies Honors Program. This honors program focuses on the freshman year and is compatible with any major, laying the groundwork for doing individual research projects in the years ahead.
The ISHP is an invitational, residential program for up to 171 first-year students. Founded in 1969, it is the oldest continuous residential learning community in the UC system. Classes are taught by 15 faculty members who are specialists and who demonstrate how their fields are related to other disciplines and contemporary issues.
