Welcome to the Humanities and Social Sciences Honors Program
We have an exciting curriculum, an exclusive Honors Program Lounge, small classes and program activities designed for the student who is looking for a challenging and creative approach to higher education. See our current newsletter for photographs and articles about Program activities.
Graduating high school seniors who are looking for a unique academic approach to the humanities and social sciences, particularly those classes that fulfill general education requirements, are encouraged to contact us for further information about the program.
Students who qualify for the guaranteed scholarships (Louisiana, Red River, and Shreveport) are invited to apply as are students entering LSUS with a minimum ACT of 24 and an unweighted high school GPA of 3.00. The freshman intake application should be completed in full.
Students who are currently enrolled at LSUS and have completed less than 75 hours are also encouraged to apply. The application form for continuing students can be found here. Some stipulations apply.
Students will need to meet some ongoing Requirements to stay in the program from one semester to the next, but we have plenty of faculty and advising to assist all Program students. A copy of the current Honors Program Brochure can be accessed from this link.
