CCGA Honors Program
The CCGA Honors Program is a program of academic excellence, leadership opportunity, and service to the community. These three pillars of the program are at the heart of the College’s mission to provide students with a quality education in an experiential, global, entrepreneurial environment that develops a student’s leadership potential. Members of the Honors Program represent some of the most academically talented students at CCGA, and these students are guided by the Honors Advisory Committee (HAC) that includes faculty from across the campus.
The Honors Program seeks to provide each participant with the opportunity to earn 18-24 credits in Honors program offerings during their course of study. Most of these credits will be earned during the first and second years of study. As the program grows, we plan to offer an interdisciplinary seminar in the third year of study and an Honors capstone project in the final year of study.
The CCGA Honors Program works with the Office of Residence Life to arrange an Honors living community when possible, and a member of the Honors Program currently serves as the resident assistant to members of the Honors Program.
The CCGA Honors Program is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) and the Southern Regional Honors Council (SRHC) and strives to meet each of the NCHC Basic Characteristics of a Fully Developed Honors Program.
The CCGA Honors Program also coordinates the activities of the College of Coastal Georgia Chapter of the Golden Key International Honour Society.
