Augusta University Honors Program

Augusta University Honors Program The Augusta University Honors Program offers talented, motivated students an enhanced learning experience. The Honors Program was approved by the Augusta University faculty in 1996.
(5)

Open to students in every major and discipline, the Program offers talented, motivated students an enhanced learning experience more typical of a small, much more expensive, liberal arts college. We do this by providing: 1.) Sections of core courses that are specifically designed for able and energetic learners. These courses are also taught by faculty members committed to excellence in undergraduate education and are limited to 20 students. 2.) Seminars that cross the boundaries of disciplines and/or cultures. 3.) A more active learning environment in which students learn to think critically and improve their writing and speaking skills. 4.) Opportunities to engage in undergraduate research by completing a senior thesis. 5.) A unique and challenging way to satisfy general core course requirements. 6.) In-depth academic advising. 7.) Co-curricular activities through the Honors Program Student Association (HPSA). The Honors Program is located in the Quad Wall Building on the Summerville Campus of Augusta University.

Mission: The Honors Program Mission: The Honors Program seeks to challenge students intellectually, enhance their interpersonal communications skills and prepare them for a culturally diverse society. The course of study balances breadth and depth. It is not a separate degree program but is designed to augment the course work required for a degree. Successful completion of the program requirements culminates in an Honors Degree, a seal of distinction which lets prospective employers, graduate schools and professional schools know that the student has maintained a consistent record of excellence.
