Study Aboard & Undergraduate Research

Experiential Learning

The College of Charleston Honors College places a heavy emphasis on experiential learning. While at CofC, most Honors Students take advantage of the plentiful number of learning opportunities that take place outside of the classroom. This typically includes Undergraduate Research, Study Abroad, and Community Engagement. 

Undergraduate Research

Student research is an integral part of the Honors College experience. Honors students conduct research across disciplines, exploring new ideas and seeking out creative solutions.

For Honors students, research is about examining the world to better understand how it works and discovering ways you can improve it.

Study Abroad

Nearly 60% of Honors College students study abroad during their time at the College of Charleston. Many more study or conduct research domestically, across the United States.

The life experience, skills, and perspective you will learn and develop while studying abroad are valuable in today's globalized world.
