How will you change the world?

Mercer HonorsAt Mercer, everyone majors in changing the world. In Mercer Honors, students develop the skills, vision, and mission to define how they will change the world.

Mercer Honors is a community of high-achieving students each driven by a personal mission. Honors students take courses in service and leadership, research and inquiry, and vocation and mission to define their purpose, develop the skills and experience to change the world, and build a life-long trajectory of achievement.

Mercer Honors builds on the small classes with attentive faculty, the close-knit community, and the engaged learning opportunities to conduct research, learn through service, and study around the world that are hallmarks of the Mercer experience. Mercer Honors students apply their learning to real-world issues and pursue opportunities for growth and development through honors pathways.

Through Mercer Honors, you will define your mission, develop skills, and gain experience to change the world.
