The Honors College at East Carolina University is a diverse intellectual community for academically talented students of strong character. Our students engage in stimulating coursework that spans disciplines across campus, providing for a challenging and innovative curricular and co-curricular model. Honors students are provided with the opportunity to engage in immersive service-learning, undergraduate research, and internship experiences throughout their four years. Students will leave the Honors College with a foundation of skills and experiences designed to make them competitive for graduate programs, scholarships, and careers following graduation.
The Honors College provides students with a supportive living environment through a strong partnership with Campus Living. Honors students live together during their first year on campus and are supported by a skilled group of professional and para-professional housing staff. The Honors living-learning community allows for the natural formation of study groups, connections to students in similar classes, a supportive network of academically talented peers, and activities and excursions beyond the classroom.
Within the classroom, Honors students are exposed to experienced faculty from our many schools and colleges at ECU. This faculty interacts with Honors students through Honors seminars, colloquia, specially-designated sections of courses, research assistantships, mentoring and advising support. The Honors students also have access to a talented and supportive Honors College staff that assist them in working toward completion of their Honors coursework and in securing special internship, research, and study abroad opportunities. The Honors College is open to incoming freshmen by invitation only. The Honors College offices are located in the Mamie Jenkins Building and our staff may be reached at 252-328-6373.
