Information for Future Honors Students

What is Honors?

The HTC Honors College at Coastal Carolina University is a community of students and faculty who share an intellectual curiosity and a motivation to go beyond the normal curriculum. As an honors student, you will get to experience the smaller courses and high levels of faculty-student interaction that you expect to find at a smaller college combined with the opportunities and resources available at a large university. The honors courses you take will be interdisciplinary and emphasize collaborative learning. You will have access to a dedicated honors residence hall and priority registration. The HTC Scholars program will provide you with support for honors research and for study abroad. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, you will complete an honors thesis/project/portfolio, either in your major or in a subject of your choosing. The Honors College will be your home as you grow intellectually, seek challenges, cultivate collaborative opportunities, break boundaries and expand possibilities.
