About Us

Our Mission Statement:

The Georgia Tech Honors Program combines the challenging academic standards of one of the world's finest research universities with the closer student-faculty connections one might expect to find at smaller colleges. Our mission is to create a lively environment in which students and faculty members learn from each other through a common commitment to intellectual inquiry, careful analysis, and energetic exchange of ideas.

Our Pledge:

Building on this close engagement between students and faculty in and beyond the classroom, Honors Program members benefit from unique opportunities during their years at Georgia Tech:

  • an Honors Program Residence where first-year students find a supportive living/learning community of interesting people, continue their conversations beyond the classroom, and develop connections to Georgia Tech and the surrounding community;

  • small sections of introductory core courses designed to emphasize, not just mastery of the material, but innovative inquiry and exploration within the discipline and often beyond;

  • a selection of interdisciplinary seminar courses that encourage imaginative thinking and an interdisciplinary approach to some of the most stimulating questions;

  • numerous informal opportunities for social interaction with faculty members from multiple disciplines across campus; and

  • a program of well-coordinated advising, regarding not only the Honors Program, but a student's overall curriculum, including co-ops, internships, study abroad, and other extracurricular activities, as well as counseling on future pursuits after graduation.
