Mayor Honors College Logo

The Esther G. Maynor Honors College at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke is designed to attract top student scholars by providing an atmosphere that is both academically and personally stimulating. The Honors College offers interdisciplinary seminars and discipline-specific honors courses taught by distinguished faculty members; these courses enhance the general education curriculum, facilitate academic and personal growth, and encourage the interdisciplinary exploration of ideas. Honors students also gain a sense of community through shared residential facilities as well as cultural and service learning programs. The MHC helps students become independent, successful thinkers, researchers, and communicators while simultaneously preparing them to be responsible members of a global society.

Honors students enjoy such benefits as priority registration, access to the Honors Reading Room and Honors Computer Lab in Hickory Hall, and the opportunity to participate in the Honors Scholar Laptop Initiative. Students are also eligible for scholarships and fellowships that make their education more affordable.

The Maynor Honors College offers an intellectually stimulating social environment, curricular flexibility, and close interaction with individual faculty members in the college. Please contact us if you have any questions about the unique opportunities available through the Honors College.
