Dean’s Message

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.

Sincerely,

Dr. Dolores Guerrero
Dean
