Honors Scholar Program

Honors Scholar Program – Honors Courses

Honors students at High Point University benefit from over 40 honors courses, some of which are listed here.In addition to participating in honors classes and working closely with faculty in research and practice, honors students are also able to contract up to eight hours of courses for honors credit during junior and senior years. Contracting a class allows students to take high level non-honors courses, while completing supplementary work and experience more individualized attention from the professor.

“I have found that HPU honors students are the creme of the crop–highly motivated, driven to succeed, and intellectually engaged. They dare to ask questions and seek answers to those questions. That’s what I love most about teaching honors students.”

Dr. Aaron Titus
Associate Professor of Physics
