General Education Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees

Leadership Studies

You could say that leadership is part of our academic DNA. We incorporate it into our core curriculum and our majors.

And, if your academically ambitious, you can also apply to the Hearin Leadership Program. The program is designed for students who have their sights on upwardly mobile career paths, who see themselves as leaders in their fields. The program focuses on honing the skills of self-knowledge, self-discipline, initiative, and teamwork that all good leaders share. Monthly leadership events focus on sharpening these skills and community service projects are great practice grounds for what you’ve learned…and you get to make a difference while you’re learning.

In Good Company

The W Leaders have distinguished themselves across Mississippi and the United States. They are a strong community with a proud tradition.

Study Abroad

Study abroad is life changing and essential for the modern student. Study abroad creates global awareness, enhances academic learning, develops leadership skills, adds to personal growth, and can help students advance their careers. Mississippi University for Women provides a variety of opportunities for students to study abroad. Through these programs students can study nearly anywhere in the world. MUW offers at least one study abroad program each year directed by MUW faculty and sponsored by the university. These programs have been held in England, Scotland, Spain, Mexico, and Belgium. Primarily offered in the summer, sponsored programs are different each year. For further information on current programs offered by MUW contact the Coordinator of Study Abroad.

Honors College

The Ina E. Gordy Honors College supports students with a track record of academic excellence and intellectual motivation as they seek to take their accomplishments to the next level. The Honors College has exciting and diverse programs such as the Residential Honors Program and the Honors Study Abroad. The Honors College presents the Forum Series each semester. The Forum Series is one of the premier lecture series in the state.

Opportunity Rich

Members of the Honors College have a myriad of special opportunities presented to them. They have had the chance to meet authors such as Joy Castro, Melissa Delbridge, and Rick Bragg. Honors students had a private round-table discussion about international affairs with former Secretary of Defense William Cohen. Members have been given the opportunity to meet with civil rights legend and comedian Dick Gregory, founding member of the rap group Public Enemy Chuck D., and Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin.

Research & Leadership

Members may apply for grants to support undergraduate research and travel to regional and national honors conferences. Members may also work toward leadership opportunities within the Honors College. These positions include: service on the Student Honors Committee, Mentors to the Residential Honors Program, Community Living liaison, and employment as the administrative assistant to the Honors College.

MUW Faculty

Our professors are Fulbright Scholars, authors, editors of scientific journals, artists, performers and, best of all, teachers. You’ll find that our faculty are nationally recognized for their contributions to their disciplines and all are dedicated educators …in the classroom and accessible to students.
