Southeastern University Honors Program

The Honors Program at Southeastern University is devoted to cultivating within its scholars a passion for developing their personal faith and higher learning so that they may pursue truth and lead lives full of good work, serving as vibrant leaders in their professions, in Christian communities, and throughout the world in the spirit of Christ.

The Honors Program consists of approximately 24-27 hours of advanced study developed specifically for incoming freshmen who have a demonstrated record of academic success prior to the start of their undergraduate studies. Courses have been developed that either fulfill specific General Education requirements or enhance each student’s declared major area of study.

Starting with an Honors Program version of the freshman course Christ, Culture, and the University, students take two to three special courses each year. Honors study at Southeastern culminates in the design, development, and completion of a major thesis or capstone project during the students’ senior year. 

Other Honors Program Benefits

 As an Honors Program participant you receive an annual $3,000 scholarship, renewable each year you are in the program.

Beyond the $3,000 scholarship, participation in the Honors Program also will show graduate programs the students’ readiness for graduate-level education.
