Loyola University Chicago

Interdisciplinary Honors Program


In a challenging atmosphere charged with enthusiastic student participation, professors and students work together in small, stimulating honors classes to explore critical issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. Led by professors at the top of their respective fields, the program follows many of the best practices in higher education.


This is one of Aminatu (Ami) Rubango's UNIV 101 classes. Ami is a first/second year academic adviser in Loyola's Interdisciplinary Honors Program. UNIV 101 is a mandatory, first year, fall semester class intended to help first year students make a smooth transition from high school to college. Students select courses, make four-year plans, learn to set priorities, get to know Chicago, and discuss many other aspects of college life at Loyola University Chicago. Your academic adviser and a peer adviser are the instructors of this course. You will meet your academic adviser at your freshman orientation!

Civic Opera

First-year Honors students attended the opera "Les Troyens" in November 2016 at the Civic Opera House in downtown Chicago. This opera tells the story of Trojan warrior, Aeneas, from Virgil's "Aeneid," a required text this semester in the Interdisciplinary Honors Program.
