The Augusta University Honors Program provides all motivated and high-potential learners the opportunity to enhance their undergraduate education.
The honors program at Augusta University is much more than taking challenging classes—it is an entire program of study that will enhance your education by bringing you together with both the university’s brightest, most ambitious students and outstanding professors who are dedicated to creative and intensive instruction of undergraduates.

|Principles of Biology I
|Principles of Biology II
|Honors Public Speaking
|Honors Freshman Composition I
|Honors Freshman Composition II
|United States since 1877
|Fundamentals of Academic Inquiry
|Calculus and Analytic Geometry I
|Introduction to Philosophy

|United States to 1877
|Rock 'n' Roll and Society
|Intro to Ethics
The honors thesis is a work of original research or scholarly or creative activity in which honors students work closely with faculty members to investigate topics in greater detail than is possible in regular classes.
The honors thesis is usually completed over three semesters and is followed by a capstone course during which students will present their research, assess the honors program and their participation in it, and devise and execute a plan to improve the honors program.
