Honors Guild

The Honors Guild brings students together from across campus to form a microcosm of Taylor's campus-wide learning community.

When Honors Scholars arrive as freshmen, they take Foundations of the Christian Liberal Arts and an intercultural education class that prepares them to study abroad together during J-term. Through these shared experiences, Honors Scholars begin forming close relationships that encourage them to challenge each other in their mutual pursuits of excellence.

As an Honors Scholar, you will engage in more intense and challenging classes with mentors committed to helping you reach for excellence in individual and collaborative projects. You'll have access to the Honors Lodge for study, research, relaxation, and exclusive conversations with scholars-in-residence.

Honors Scholars also have special opportunities to take travel courses and go to places like South Africa and Northern Ireland while earning academic credit.


Learn more about being an Honors Scholar, check out frequently asked questions, and, when you're ready, review our application requirements and apply. Pursue your purpose and calling to Kingdom service, knowing that you are joining a community of believers that will encourage you toward even greater commitment to intellectual vitality.
