Weekly Message

unnamed_20.jpgI am pleased to announce a new minor, housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, in Southern Studies. (See https://casminors.appstate.edu/southern-studies for full details). A minor in Southern Studies is an excellent complement to majors in humanities, social sciences, the health professions, and others.

Honors College students have distinct advantages when pursuing a minor in Southern Studies, since my HON seminar courses count for full credit in this minor. Please get in touch with me if you are interested in learning more, or if you need help including this minor in your current schedule: gallienlb@appstate.edu.

-Dr. Gallien

The Honors College at ASU!

The Honors College at Appalachian offers an enhanced intellectual experience for the most academically motivated students on campus, one that fosters independent and creative thinking, global engagement, and personal integrity. The Honors curriculum includes topically focused, interdisciplinary, and discussion-based seminars. It extends to a required international experience, and culminates in an Honors thesis as original research or a creative endeavor. Students in the Honors College are supported and challenged by a community of like-minded learners. From the Honors experience, students emerge as lifelong learners well prepared for post-graduate training—leaders of the future.
