Campbellsville University recognizes that each student must be given the opportunity to reach his or her full intellectual potential. The honors Program reaches out to our most talented students and provides them with a more challenging educational experience and opportunities to participate in social events. The program is open to all students, and any student who completes all program requirements will be recognized as an Honors Program Graduate at commencement and will receive an Honors Diploma.

Participating in the Honors Program
Honors courses are not separate classes. They meet along with the regular class; however, Honors students use a different syllabus that provides a more rigorous, enlightening and challenging experience. They will have some different, more thought-provoking assignments.
Honors Seminar courses are designed to enhance intellectual growth outside the traditional classroom through discussions covering a wide range of topics. Honors Seminars meet once a week.
Honors Service Projects
At least once per semester, the honors program will sponsor a service project to provide students the opportunity to complete their community service requirement. Also, the Honors Program can assist its members in finding opportunities to volunteer in the community as individuals.
