Honors Program

The Flagler College Honors Program supports exceptionally creative, talented, and intellectually engaged students. As a student in this program, you’ll maximize your educational experience by interacting closely with faculty and peers in a stimulating interdisciplinary environment.

Program Description

Only a small percentage of students (around 5% of each class of incoming freshmen) are invited to join the Honors Program each year, and other students may join the program through a faculty recommendation during their freshman or sophomore years.

From first-year courses that are specially designed for each incoming class to the senior capstone project, the program offers coursework and extracurricular activities that are designed to challenge you, while also elevating your educational experience. Students successfully completing all elements of the Honors Program will be recognized at graduation and will have an Honors designation placed on their official academic transcripts.
