Founded in 1996, the Honors Program at Armstrong State University has rapidly developed into a vibrant community of student leaders. The Program is open to any incoming freshmen who meet two criteria: 1) having a 3.5 or higher high school GPA, and 2) having an ACT score of at least 25 / SAT combined Evidence-Based Reading + Mathematics score of at least 1200. The Program is also open to any continuing or transfer student who maintains a 3.3 college GPA.
What Does the Honors Program Offer?
- Creative, small classes in the place of general education requirements
- The opportunity to apply intellectual curiosity to independent projects or special major classes
- Student-centered approach to learning that is central to the program's mission
- Field trips, community service projects, study-abroad programs, social gatherings, and trips to regional and national conferences where students present the results of their Honors experiences.
In sum, the Honors Program embodies the traditional values of a liberal arts education at its best, fosters a commitment to lifelong learning, and serves as a campus testing ground for innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
