Georgia Tech Honors Program Curriculum

Honors Program students must complete a minimum of 15 credits of Honors Program coursework during their undergraduate studies at Georgia Tech. (Honors Program courses are indicated by “HP” following the course number.)

There are two categories of HP courses listed below. For Honors Program students graduating in Fall 2015 and thereafter, you may complete any combination of courses from either category to satisfy the 15-credit Honors Program requirement.

The first category includes HP courses that satisfy Georgia Tech core curriculum requirements. The second category includes HP courses that may satisfy other elective requirements. Please be sure to consult with your major advisor about your core curriculum and other elective requirements.

Additional notes: 

The Honors Program courses are sufficiently exceptional that we do not readily accept substitutions. In very rare and extenuating circumstances, which will be decided on a case-by-case basis, the Honors Program may approve the substitution of another Georgia Tech course for an Honors Program course, if and only if the following information can be provided in advance:

·         a detailed course description and/or statement from the professor that explains how the course fits with the goals and approach of the Honors Program.

·         an indication that the course involves regular engagement with other students (e.g. not an independent study or individual laboratory project) and that some form of rigorous assessment of student learning/accomplishment is incorporated.
