The Augsburg Honors Program offers an adventurous education where exceptional students with a passion for ideas can be their best. We offer a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for students committed to an outstanding higher education.
Augsburg’s Honors Program is unlike any other honors program in the nation because it gives students the resources and freedom to build their own ideal higher education. Honors students take the Honors curriculum – which satisfies the general education requirements – and have the opportunity to create their own courses, edit and write for the Honors Review (an interdisciplinary journal for undergraduate scholarship), engage in faculty/student research collaboration, and belong to an Honors House.
Dynamic opportunities for growth through Service and Leadership
House Presidents are elected to sit on the Student Honors Council and Faculty Honors Council, and be a part of crucial decisions about the program, the courses, and the requirements.
Honors Desk Staff work at the Honors desk in the Honors suite and are crucial to the administration of the program in matters financial, academic, and social. Honors Review is managed, edited, written, and published by Augsburg Honors students. The Review is an interdisciplinary journal of undergraduate scholarship that accepts submissions from students, selects the best, and publishes the results. Honors students may be staff writers, editors, or managing editors, and use the experience to satisfy their research requirement.
Our students are Informed Citizens, Thoughtful Stewards, Critical Thinkers, and Responsible Leaders. Check out this interview with one of our students who is the epitome of an engaged Honors Student:
