The Embry-Riddle Honors Program is highly selective, offering its student members enriched educational experiences. Emphasizing Honors course work in General Education and in the majors, the program involves selected faculty who develop innovative courses and establish mentoring relationships with students. The program is designed to attract and retain top students and to develop their communicative, analytical, critical, and research skills, nurturing a love of life-long learning, leadership and service.
In addition to the enrichment, distinction, and competitive edge associated with the Honors Program, here are some additional opportunities:
During their freshman year, Honors Program students are housed together in a University residence hall. Living in this community of scholars proves to be an enriching opportunity for students to make life-long friendships with individuals who help them succeed in and out of the classroom.
Students in the Honors Program have access to the Honors Center and all the resources available within it. Students are able to study in the collaborative learning spaces and computer lab, relax on the chairs and couches, and socialize with their Honors peers.
The Honors Series offers topics of interest to a broad spectrum of students, faculty, staff and members of the larger urban community.
Every year, the Honors program provides financial support for a limited number of research projects for Honors Program students, directed by Embry-Riddle faculty.
"The Honors Program as an Aeronautical Science Major has allowed me to learn so much more about both the aviation industry and myself. The projects and activities I did have greatly sharpened my knowledge and awareness as a pilot, and the lessons and morals I learned have allowed me to understand what it truly means to be successful, as well as what it takes. I am very fortunate to have been a member of this prestigious program over the past three years, for it has taught me insight that will impact my life forever."
"The Honors Program has made my experience at ERAU so much more than I ever expected it to be. Within the Honors Program, I immediately found a home – a place I could be a leader and a place I could bond with and learn from my peers. Being constantly surrounded by these dedicated and passionate Honors students inspires me every day to be the best student I can be at ERAU."
