Johnson University’s Honors Program offers academically talented undergraduates on the Tennessee campus an opportunity to enhance their University experience through creative coursework, cultural events, and association with a small group of outstanding students. Participants enjoy a rich and rigorous educational experience that provides excellent preparation for graduate school or seminary. Incoming freshmen and rising sophomores who meet the requirements may apply for admission to the program, which begins every fall term.

Honors Program students may pursue any of Johnson University’s undergraduate professional majors or minors. They also have the option of designing a customized pre-seminary or pre-graduate school minor(s) with a focus in History, Literature, or Religious Studies. Each minor requires a total of 18 credit hours, or six courses in any one of these areas of study.

Honors students also have access to special classes, early registration, and extra work-study opportunities, and they receive Honors recognition on their diplomas.

For more information, including admission requirements to the program, review our academic catalog or contact Dr. Gerald Mattingly, director of the Honors Program.
