Founded in 1988, EKU Honors makes the best intellectual resources at EKU available to a limited group of talented and motivated students.
EKU Honors is designed for students just like you who want an in-depth college classroom experience with a strong grounding in an interdisciplinary, liberal arts education. Whatever your major, you’ll take advantage of our small, team-taught classes, with no more than 20 of your peers in each class. These classes replace most, if not all, of your general education and university requirements. Before you graduate as an Honors Scholar, you’ll complete an honors thesis on the topic of your choice.
As an Honors student, you'll get to know your fellow students and professors at our monthly pizza suppers and on trips to local theatre and dance performances, the Louisville opera, and the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference, where more students from EKU present than from any other honors program or college in the nation. In EKU Honors, you'll make friends that last a lifetime.
