Welcome to the website for the Honors College and Trans-disciplinary Programs!

Since 1999, when we became the first Honors College sanctioned by the Georgia Board of Regents, our goal has been to transform lives – helping UWG’s best undergraduates metamorphose from high achieving students into productive scholars contributing to academic conversations taking place within their disciplines and making a positive difference in the communities where they study and live.
