• HSU Honors Program

    The Hardin-Simmons University Honors Program provides an enriched, educational environment for undergraduate students of exceptional promise who have a wide variety of interests and seek an enhanced learning opportunity.

    In keeping with the University's Christian mission, the Honors Program promotes creative and critical thinking skills to equip individuals for success in today's world.

    The Program, which serves as an integral part of the academic community, includes courses taught by selected faculty members interested in working with highly motivated students. The Honors Program expects participants to strive for excellence and assume personal accountability for their intellectual growth. The goal of Honors studies is to encourage students to engage more actively in pursuing knowledge, in discussing ideas, and in challenging themselves to grow intellectually and spiritually. As a result each Honors student accepted to the program will receive $3000 per year on top of any Academic Scholarship money received
