Representing the Finest in Honors Education

The Shackouls Honors College at Mississippi State University is committed to excellence in all aspects of education. Formerly the University Honors Program at Mississippi State University, the Shackouls Honors College offers students an exceptional foundation upon which to build a successful future.
Mississippi State University’s Shackouls Honors College takes inspiration from the world-renowned Cambridge and Oxford Universities: as a residential college, students can expect high-quality accommodation, outstanding educational resources, cutting-edge facilities and dedicated support from a passionate faculty.
The Shackouls Honors College at Mississippi State University offers an unparalleled Cursus Honorum (“Path of Honors”). Seminars consist of no more than 15 students and lectures remain similarly small, with a maximum of 25 attendees. This promotes a tighter focus and an intimate atmosphere, facilitating more inclusive group discussions when appropriate.
