Welcome to the Honors College
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 pre-professional experiences throughout their undergraduate 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. The Honors living-learning community allows for the natural formation of study groups, connections to students in similar classes, and a supportive network of academically talented peers.
Within the classroom, Honors students are exposed to experienced faculty from our many schools and colleges at ECU. These faculty interact 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 who assist them in working toward completion of their Honors coursework and in securing special internship, research, and study abroad opportunities.
