Augustine Honors Minor/Emphasis (CUS)


College of Undergraduate Studies


School of Humanities and Social Sciences

The Augustine Honors Minor and Augustine Honor Emphasis are designed to work within the framework of CCU's existing General Education curriculum, enabling students to satisfy general education requirements through Great Books courses while earning the minor or emphasis in the Augustine Honors program.

The Augustine Honors Minor and Emphasis are academically rigorous programs that fosters interdisciplinary learning and research scholarship. The heart of the Augustine Honors program is the experience of intense communal learning centered on the reading and discussion of Great Books. The liberal arts curriculum explores the disciplines of History, Literature, Politics, and Rhetoric, with a view to developing students' liberal arts skills and integrating their observations and insights into their character and personal beliefs. The core courses fulfill some requirements for the General Education curriculum and provide a minor or emphasis. The Augustine Honors program as a whole is only available to Distinguished Scholarship recipients who attend World Changers Weekend.

Because of the distinctive curriculum that comprises the Augustine Honors program, students are limited in the coursework that can be transferred in to satisfy program requirements. To earn the Augustine Honors Minor, students must complete at least four of the required courses at CCU, and may transfer in a three or four credit hour course to satisfy the final requirement. To earn the Augustine Honors Emphasis, students must complete all of the required courses at CCU.
