Honors at Georgetown College
There are three basic tracks within the Georgetown College Honors Program: Oxford Honors, Science Honors, and Independent Honors. The Georgetown College Honors Program strives to encourage the intellectual growth of the College community by giving highly motivated students at all levels the opportunity to pursue challenging and stimulating academic and cultural experiences. All Honors Programs require an application and an interview. Applications are due by November 1st to interview on Friday, November 30th, and by January 15th to interview on February 15th.
Honors students have many opportunities for friendships and relationships with each other and faculty, helping to form an intellectual coterie through the rigors of college
Students accepted into honors receive $1,000 additional merit scholarship, and funding for many opportunities, including going to Oxford, summer research for science, and honors projects.
One recent grad used her honors project on the environmental impacts of the Rio Olympic games to get into a top Environmental Law program and land an internship with the Sports Environmental Alliance in Australia.
