Honors-in-Discipline programs are offered within a variety of degree programs at ETSU. HID Scholars receive special advising from a Program Coordinator in their discipline, have priority registration status, are members of the Honors College community, and become eligible for special opportunities and scholarships. HID Scholars also receive honors graduation and transcript recognition.
HID Scholars take a minimum of 18 hours of honors coursework. This coursework generally counts toward the student's major, allows each student to work closely with faculty in the discipline, and includes hours earned during the completion of an Honors Thesis. Thesis projects vary by discipline; they result from a research or creative project the scholar undertakes under the direction of faculty in the discipline.
