Embry-Riddle Honors Program

The Honors Program at Embry-Riddle is highly selective, offering students an enriched educational experience while also giving them opportunities to enhance campus and community life for others. Honors Program students enroll in several general education seminars focused on relevant, stimulating, interdisciplinary topics that encourage critical and creative thinking. Honors classes are small, the faculty are carefully selected, and the courses are student-centered and discussion-oriented.
