The EKU Honors Program

Founded in 1988, the EKU Honors Program makes the best intellectual resources at EKU available to a limited group of talented and motivated students.

Students take honors program classes that replace most or all of their general education and University requirements in small interdisciplinary courses, taught by teams of caring faculty. Honors Program students receive significant additional benefits including priority registration, the Books-on-Loan Award, and the opportunity to present their research and creative projects at honors conferences across the country. In fact, more students from the EKU Honors Program present at the annual meeting of the National Collegiate Honors Council than do students from any other honors program in the nation.

Living in the centrally located Burnam Hall and attending numerous cultural activities together, Honors Program students form a tight honors community and make friends that last a lifetime.
