The GSC Honors Program offers an opportunity for talented and motivated students to take enriched versions of selected courses. Honors classes offer a more in-depth study of the course topic. Students excel because they are a part of a group of highly-motivated peers and have more personal attention from their professors. Class size is usually limited to 12-18 students. They develop intellectually and creatively in a supportive environment. Classes focus on discussion, analysis, and problem solving rather than on lecture, memorization, and quiz taking. These classes provide a strong foundation for excellence in undergraduate, graduate, and professional pursuits.
Participation in the program does not add or change any requirements for graduation.
Students entering the program will be advised by the Director in consultation with faculty from the student’s major discipline. Students in Honors classes can register early for classes the following semester by contacting the Honors Assistant Director, Dr. Anastasia Turner (Gainesville Campus) or Dr. Matthew Horton (Oconee Campus).
