DOROTHY AND BILL COHEN HONORS COLLEGE

Honors Curriculum:

Earning an Honors Distinction

Challenging coursework and problem-solving learning are central to the Honors experience. The Cohen Honors College asks students to combine traditional and discussion-based classes with research, creative activity, and applied learning such as study abroad or internship.

We offer several different ways to earn an honors distinction on the transcript or diploma. Start with the Emory Linquist Honors Scholars track or jump right into interdisciplinary study of leadership or law and public policy. Talk with your academic advisors about the path that's best for you.
