Honors Program

Founded in 1987, the Honors Program focuses on building a community of academically curious learners, offering interesting and challenging courses, and developing each student for their future career.


The Honors Program is dedicated to providing an augmented college experience for intellectually gifted and highly motivated undergraduate students. This is facilitated within the structure of the rigorous Citadel experience by promoting challenging academics, creating opportunities for exploration, encouraging engagement and leadership beyond the classroom, and supporting a personalized collegiate environment that includes one-on-one development with Citadel faculty and advisors.



Through a student-centered, vibrant learning community that embraces education as a lifetime endeavor, the Honors Program will further the mission of The Citadel to educate and develop students to become principled leaders.

Key aspects of the Honors Program experience include small class sizes, mentoring, focused academic advising, professional development, faculty connections, and alumni networks.

Honors Program classes will foster engaging dialogue and independent thought, cultivating intellectual curiosity and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Honors Program students will utilize professional development to secure opportunities that augment classroom learning with internship programs, study away programs, research opportunities, service organizations, and external scholarship support.

The Honors Program will empower each student to explore their purpose and pursue their passion, cultivating relationships with professionals and peers.

Graduates will secure post-graduate placements in leading institutions that value inquiry, personal responsibility, independent problem solving, and resiliency.


Prospective students are encouraged to read through the information in the Prospective Students section for information on the program and the application process.
