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.
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.
