Welcome to the College of Coastal Georgia's Honors Program!
Taught by outstanding faculty, honors courses are smaller and more focused on active learning. Our goal in the Honors Program is to provide enhanced educational experiences to the brightest and most driven students at the College. We do this through smaller courses taught by honors faculty, and through other opportunities for learning and growth outside of the classroom. We strive to connect our students to faculty members and community partners through internships, service-learning projects, and opportunities to pursue undergraduate research.
Honors students have the opportunity to take honors sections of introductory courses in general education core (areas A-E). At least one honors course will be offered each semester in general education core. To graduate from the program, students need to complete 12 hours of honors credits. They also need to maintain a 3.0 GPA and complete 10 hours of service per academic year.
Students enrolled in honors will have opportunities to:
- Pursue excellence in their own disciplines while establishing cross-disciplinary connections to other bodies of knowledge and expertise.
- Work with professors to plan and enact programs of undergraduate research.
- Take leadership roles in student and academic organizations.
- Engage in service initiatives and internships with community partners.
Educational and Intellectual Pillars:
Everything we do in the Honors program revolves around four educational and intellectual pillars.
- Critical thinking
- Undergraduate research
- Interdisciplinary learning
- Civic engagement and leadership
