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.
Unique Opportunities Await
The Honors Program provides a holistic developmental environment for intellectually
curious students through enriching experiences both within and outside of the classroom. Honors students have the opportunity to take smaller classes encouraging you to think
critically and develop your writing, speaking, and presentation skills. Develop opportunities
that help you engage in undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activities.
