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!

Students who participate in Honors:

  • Join a community of scholars and have the opportunity to closely work and learn in small, honors sections of courses
  • Work one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conduct an honors research project culminating in a written thesis
  • Engage in multiple experiential learning activities outside of the classroom
  • Have a GREAT project to use on their CVs or rèsumès when applying to future jobs or graduate programs
