ACU in Germany

ACU in Germany

We are excited to offer you a unique opportunity in Spring 2010!  If you will be at least a sophomore by credit hours (meaning you will have at least 30 credits by Dec. 2009), you are eligible to receive an exclusive, one-time-only travel stipend of $1000 to travel to Leipzig, Germany for the spring semester!  This $1000 will be in addition to any other scholarships or Study Abroad grants you may have already!

This spring, you are invited to join Dr. Ron Morgan and his wife, Dr. Janine Morgan, for a life-changing semester in Germany.  The Morgans will guide you as you delve into Germany‘s rich historical and theological legacy.  This will be an academically challenging semester, especially designed for students who want to stretch themselves philosophically, psychologically and theologically.

While in Germany, students will take 16 credit hours, including German language courses.  The courses offered in Germany in Spring 2010 include:
BIBL 212.S3 Christianity and Culture
BIBH 380.S3 Survey of Church History
FLGE 111/112.S3 Elementary German I and II

About Honors College

What is the Honors College?

The Honors College enhances the ACU experience for high-achieving undergraduates. For its members, the Honors College offers stimulating courses, social events, small-group chapel, service opportunities, grants for travel and research, and other learning opportunities.

Students are enrolled in two Honors courses per semester, which replace standard general education requirements in their degree plans. They receive special advising and early registration so they can fit honors work into their degree plans efficiently. Honors College students work with exciting teachers. The Honors Colloquia expose students to interdisciplinary discussions not available anywhere else in the University. Honors contracts and the Capstone Project connect students with mentors in their own fields and prepare them for graduate work and careers. All these features help manifest the Honors College’s slogan: Great gifts, great responsibilities.

The mission of the ACU Honors College is to support the recruitment, retention, and nurture of gifted students by providing enhanced academic opportunities and to strengthen the academic culture of the University. The Honors College prepares students for lives of high professional achievement, integrity, and social engagement.
