The Augusta University Honors Program provides all motivated and high-potential learners the opportunity to enhance their undergraduate education.

Our honors curriculum encompasses three central educational goals—knowledge, communication, and professionalism—supported through creative core courses, unique interdisciplinary seminars, and mentored projects. The process of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity culminates in an honors thesis. Throughout the program honors students receive advising, instruction, and mentoring from honors staff and faculty and the support to present their findings at appropriate state, regional, and national conferences.
