Incoming Freshmen: Do you want to be challenged to grow in understanding the most important challenges facing humanity, exploring your ethical role in the world, and enacting changes to make a positive difference? Do you want to grow in your ability to engage meaningfully and positively with diverse people, places, events, opportunities, and challenges?

Incoming Freshmen: Have you already decided to dedicate yourself to a career as a medical professional? The Honors College and the Quillen College of Medicine have collaborated to create the Honors and Quillen Partnership Program (aka Quillen Honors Scholars) that allows high-achieving students to apply and be accepted to medical school while completing their undergraduate and medical school programs of study separately. Selected Early Assurance matriculants are able to bypass some of the traditional medical school requirements, like taking the MCAT and interviewing at multiple schools. This program includes a funded, faculty-led study abroad experience the summer after the first year!
Incoming Freshmen, Transfer Students, and current ETSU students: formerly known as the "Honors-in-Discipline" program, the URHP features 24 Departments across ETSU offering opportunities for students to engage in honors instruction in discipline-specific curricula that culminate in a hands-on, mentor-guided, senior honors thesis project. As an Undergraduate Research Honors Program Scholar you will be a part of the larger Honors community and have opportunities to network with your Honors peers, study abroad, participate in internships, engage in additional research, or travel to present your research at conferences.
