The Honors Program at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi offers an enriched plan of study to highly motivated students who have the capacity to excel academically and a strong and abiding determination to reach their greatest intellectual potential. We pride ourselves on being an experience-based program that helps students develop the skills necessary to succeed in the workforce or graduate education, by focusing on three key areas of personal development: undergraduate research, study away, and volunteerism. Students admitted to our selective community of scholars will receive the following direct benefits:
Undergraduate Research/Creative Experience
*Study with outstanding faculty
*Work on original research
*Honors research fellowships
Study Away Experience
*Travel to professional events
Service Learning Experience
*Course credit for internships
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
Upon completion of the Honors Program, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate critical thinking and analytical skills, to include: creative thinking, innovation, inquiry and analysis, evaluation, and synthesis of information.
2. Demonstrate communication skills, to include: the effective development and interpretation and expression of ideas through written, oral, and visual communication.
Students can apply for admission to the Honors Program by completing the general application for admission to the university (ApplyTexas) and choose if they want to apply to the program. If they select “yes” they will be taken to a secondary application for the Program that can be submitted automatically with their general application. Students will be admitted on a rolling basis to the program as space allows for those meeting the requirements outlined on the Honors Program website (honors.tamucc.edu). The Director and Program Coordinator will review the application as part of the admissions process prior to making invitations to join the Program. The Program will host open houses for prospective students.
