HONORS INSTITUTE CURRICULUM
The Honors Institute offers a unique curriculum which satisfies the majority of the liberal arts Core Curriculum requirements and is compatible with all majors at Erskine College. Students study the Bible and Great Texts in smaller cohort classes which prioritize discussion as a means of training students in communication skills, critical thinking, and biblical worldview formation.
Because the Honors Institute is not a major like History, Biology, Business Administration, or another discipline, Honors Institute students are able to satisfy the majority of their general education requirements through the Honors core while working toward a degree in a field of their choosing.
The Four-Year Honors Institute Plan (40 credit hours)
Honors Scholars concurrently enroll in two Honors Institute courses each semester for the first three years: an Honors Discussion Seminar (4 credits) and an Honors Lecture Course (2 credits), both of which meet twice weekly.
By their senior year, Honors Scholars will satisfy their remaining honors credits (4) through Experiential Learning opportunities including guided research, internships, study abroad, and service projects.
