Honors Program Director's Welcome Message

Thank you for visiting the University of Texas A&M-Texarkana's Honors Program Website to learn more about the students in the Honors Program and the opportunities available.  We are building an Honors Program to lead the way in academic excellence with service, integrity, and determination  As we grow, more and more opportunities become available for our students on campus and through the vehicle of this Website.

At A&M-Texarkana we are building a student led Honors Program that prepares 21st century students for successful careers.  Honors specific courses are built with a focus on interdisciplinary undergraduate research, information, and technology as key components.  Generally, the mandate of the Honors Program is to provide smaller class sizes and close contact with faculty members so that our students are immersed in the experiences that will benefit them after graduation.

I am convinced that we are building an Honors Program that will provide an unmatched experience for students in East Texas and beyond.  Our Honors students raise the bar of academic standards across the campus, they are in positions of leadership both in the Honors Program and other university organizations, they volunteer in the local community, they win awards and internships, and they bring distinction to the University of Texas A&M-Texarkana.  

It is an exciting time to be at Texas A&M-Texarkana and in our Honors Program.  None of this would be possible without the hard work and determination of our current students and alumni, and I thank them.  I'm pleased that you are interested in becoming part of our family.  Please peruse the Website to learn about the various opportunities available to students in the Honors Program, and if I can be of any assistance, feel free to contact me.

Rock on,

Dr. Douglas Eli Julien

Director of the Academic Honors Program
