Welcome to the Honors College at Texas A&M University Kingsville. Home of Javelina Honors.
The Honors College is about our students and empowering them to achieve to their greatest potential. The Honors College was established in Fall 2010 and it is the first and only Honors College in South Texas. We are planned around the concept of a living, learning community with our administrative offices located in the residence hall.
The Honors College is designed for the outstanding student who desires a challenge and who wants to develop their talents to the fullest. It offers an opportunity for students to learn, lead, and excel. Students may pursue any major they choose thus being part of two academic colleges. The Honors courses and seminars are designed to academically challenge them in a stimulating environment of scholarly and creative collaborations with dedicated teachers and scholars. Honors College students follow a curriculum that emphasizes leadership, research, and practical experience.
We are excited to welcome both our current and newly admitted Javelina Honors students to our home in Mesquite Village West as we plan for an upcoming year which promises endless opportunities and possibilities for our Honors College and its students, faculty, and staff.
We invite you to visit our website and learn about the happenings in the Honors College.

Javelina Pride – Javelina Honors
What Honors students all share is the conviction that college is about more than just getting a degree or just learning the subject matter It is about being challenged and experiencing an in-depth involvement in their education and field of study.
The Honors College provides a foundation so our students get the most out of their academic experience. Our goals for the Honors College are to engage students in an enriched educational experience through increased undergraduate research opportunities, leadership development, community engagement, and international program opportunities. We also help transition new college students from high school to higher education through smaller classes, more interaction with faculty, and close association with students with similar goals and capabilities.
The Honors College is open to all Texas A&M University-Kingsville students who meet the academic requirements. Students in the Honors College belong to their degree-granting college and the Honors College (dual-academic citizenship). Participation in the Honors College does not lengthen the time it takes a student to graduate.
As part of the Honors College, you will closely interact with students from other colleges that you might not meet otherwise. This allows for discussions based on varied viewpoints, innovative teaching methods, and the sharing of study habits.
