Join the W&L Honors cohort!
Interested in working one-on-one with a faculty member in Writing & Linguistics on a writing-based project of your own design? Join the Writing & Linguistics Honors cohort!
If you have:
- A Writing & Linguistics major
- A GPA of 3.3 or higher
- At least 15 credit hours at Georgia Southern
- An expected graduation of Spring 2023 or later
… then you’re eligible to join the program, and I hope you do!
Our current students are working on a wide range of creative and awesome writing projects that they each designed based on their personal interests. Some write novels/collections of short stories/books of poetry, some work on linguistics-based programs, some develop research paper or projects on a topic of their choosing. If you have a writing-based project that you’ve always wanted to complete, this is your chance to design and do it!
