Honors Opportunities

Honors Program students are not limited to receiving Honors credit through academic courses. We also allow students to receive Honors credit for various  opportunities and experiences that allow for individual and intellectual growth.

Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research is designed "to connect APSU undergraduates with opportunities to conduct research and creative activity. From the application process, to pursuing funding and presenting your findings, we’re here to help you every step of the way. You can even apply to receive OUR funding for your project!"

For more information on projects that OUR has funded in the past and how to become involved, visit http://www.apsu.edu/our.

Study Abroad Experience

Studying abroad isn’t just taking a trip.  It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the world and gain resume-building experience while earning college credits.  And with programs lasting as few as two weeks and financial aid available, it’s an opportunity you cannot afford to miss.

There are various study abroad excursions throughout the year that range from a few weeks to a full year. These opportunities can be found through the Office of International Education at http://www.apsu.edu/internationaled/abroad.

Honors students earn 3 Honors credit hours per trip.

Service Learning Courses

Service learning courses are offered in a variety of disciplines and require that students engage in academic service learning that includes completing service hours hours throughout the semester. Instructors provide an orientation to service learning at the beginning of the semester to introduce students to the benefits and opportunities that academic service learning brings to the classroom. A list of service learning courses can be found at http://www.apsu.edu/volunteer/service-learning-courses.

Honors Thesis

Students can earn Honors credit by writing an Honors thesis. For more information, contact Dr. Kenney at kenneym@apsu.edu.
