The Young Harris College Honors Program offers exciting intellectual challenges for students interested in maximizing their collegiate academic experience. Students enrolled in the YHC Honors Program take special courses reserved exclusively for honors students. These courses are innovative, discussion-based and taught by the best professors at the College. Students may select honors sections of courses offered as part of the general education core curriculum, one-hour seminars on special topics within various academic disciplines or a combination of both types. Honors students also receive academic scholarships, priority registration for classes and special opportunities for travel. Upon completion of their academic program, honors students may earn an honors degree.
