Honors-in-Discipline

Honors-in-Discipline (HID) programs are departmental or college honors programs that are administered by coordinators of specific disciplines. Currently, eighteen HID programs are available at ETSU. For more information, refer to descriptions and instructions provided in each academic area. If you have specific questions about a particular HID program, please contact the Coordinator of the specific program. If you have general questions, please contact Dr. Karen Korweibel (kornweib@etsu.edu), Honors College (PO Box 70589, ETSU, Johnson City, TN 37614-1708) or call (423) 439-7506.

Each of the HID programs requires honors coursework through designated or honors-enriched courses in the discipline, as well as completion of an honors thesis. Students successfully completing these programs receive recognition on their transcript.

The Honors College at ETSU offers a range of scholarship packages for students accepted into the HID programs.  Tennessee residents who participate in an HID program may be eligible to receive an HID scholarship covering full tuition and most fees for a maximum of eight semesters of study, contingent upon maintaining eligibility.  Out-of-state students who participate in an HID program may receive a waiver of out-of-state tuition, contingent upon meeting eligibility standards. 

Incoming freshmen, whether in-state or out-of-state, must meet higher standards for funding than for acceptance in a program.

The Honors College pays no fees for RODP, graduate, or physical education courses. Please review our policies on Scholarships and Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Contact the specific program or college HID coordinator for details about your area of interest.
