Program Requirements

The mission of the Campbell University Honors program is to foster a community of undergraduate scholars dedicated to achieving excellence, exploring faith and engaging culture.

To achieve this mission, Honors students complete a sequence of challenging interdisciplinary classes and a Study Abroad experience.

Program completion requires 25 hours, as follows:

  • A sequence of 6 courses (3 credit hours each) that serve as substitutes for some GCC (General College Curriculum) requirements
  • 6 credit hours of Honors Electives (Special Topics, Dual Enrollment, or Independent Thesis)
  • Study Abroad experience + 1 credit hour follow-up course

The admissions process is extremely selective.

To be eligible for consideration in a Fall Semester cohort, students must be fully accepted to the University by November 15th.

Eligible students are ranked according to various academic criteria, and a top percentage are invited to apply for admission by submitting materials including, but not limited to, original essays and letters of recommendation. These materials are evaluated by a committee.
