Faculty: Frequently asked questions

How do I become honors faculty?

There is no technical “Honors Faculty” distinction. Any faculty member who teaches an Honors course is considered Honors faculty. The Morehead Honors College is pleased to be working with both junior and senior faculty members of academic departments all over campus. If you are interested in teaching Honors courses, contact your department head. If you would like to teach an Honors Seminar, please consult this page.

who can teach an honors course?

We are glad to have any interested faculty members, visiting lecturers, or experienced adjunct faculty. Graduate students may not offer Honors sections, though some post-doc and award-winning recent Ph.D.s have taught Honors students.

How can I get an Honors section approved?

Most likely you will need to have the course approved by your department before it is approved by the Morehead Honors College. All of these proposals will go through the curriculum committee via the CAPA course proposal system. Check with your department head.

Are all Honors courses taught in Moore Hall?

Honors sections are taught all over campus. If you would like assistance in reserving a room in Moore Hall, please contact Amanda Pruitt, assistant to the dean of the Morehead Honors College, at 706-542-0532 or apruitt@uga.edu.

Is it true that an Honors student cannot be assigned below a "B" in a course without consulting the Morehead Honors College?

No such rule exists. Any students operating under this misconception can be directed to the Morehead Honors College at honors@uga.edu.

What is the policy for current students and their eligibility to apply for the Morehead Honors College?

First Semester Entry is the only opportunity current students will have to apply for acceptance into the Morehead Honors College. Students must meet the First Semester Entry into Honors requirements, which include the following:

  • 3.8 cumulative University of Georgia GPA
  • 15 credit hours in the first semester (14 must be graded A-F)

The fulfillment of the requirements listed above does not constitute automatic admission to the Morehead Honors College. Entry into the Morehead Honors College is competitive. In addition to the fulfillment of the requirements listed above, applications will be evaluated based upon UGA grades, rigor of coursework, and the overall quality of the application, including a required essay. Students must complete the application by the last day of fall term classes  in order to be eligible for acceptance.
