The Honors Program at Alabama A&M University offers an exciting and unique experience for undergraduate students at the University.  The Honors Program also offers honors courses in English, History and Economics in a small, yet intellectually stimulating environment. 


The Honors Program provides excellent academic advising as well as professional development and guidance for future educational and career advancement.  To enhance the academic portion of the program, students are also responsible for completing fifty hours of community service per year as well as attending three cultural events. 


Through professional development seminars, fireside chats, and various methods of leadership training the Honors Program touches not only its members but also the community as a whole.  It is the goal of the Honors Program to recruit, retain and restore the viability of Alabama A&M University.  Selection is very rigorous in that admission is extended to those students who exhibit high scholastic achievement, an array of talents and have one goal in common: academic excellence.  If you feel that you possess any of the aforementioned traits, we encourage you to apply for what is guaranteed to be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in your academic career.
