University Honors College

 

In 1998, MTSU's honors program, which had begun in 1973, became an Honors College. Just a few years later, with the help of generous alumni and friends, the College moved into a state-of-the-art building, that is now a central part of East campus. While the physical facilities have improved immensely, the College maintains its mission of providing an undergraduate education of exceptional quality and value to a small but diverse student population deeply committed to scholarship.

To fulfill this mission, the Honors College fosters the academic excellence and nurturing environment of a small, select, private, liberal arts college within the setting of a major university. The free exchange of ideas and the opportunity to learn from one another in small classes taught by expert faculty make the Honors College experience rich and meaningful.

We offer Buchanan Fellowships, Honors Transfer Fellowships, and other awards to students who would like to join us, and we, in turn, work diligently to advance the careers of students who are here. For each of the last two years, the College has had one or more science students who have won the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship. For each of the last three years, we have had two or more students win prestigious Fulbright Scholarships for study abroad. Within the last several years, one of our students was appointed to the USA Today All-American Academic Team. Others have distinguished themselves in mock trial, in student government, and in other activities.

The College supports students who want to study abroad as well as those who want to present their scholarly research. Last year over 60 students wrote theses and graduated with honors.

The College is the home of an award-winning literary magazine and a journal of undergraduate research. We also work closely with the Honors Student Association and the Phi Kappa Phi and Omicron Delta Kappa honor societies.
