The Robinson Honors Program at Pensacola State College is designed to meet the needs of academically-gifted students seeking to make the most of their college experience. The program offers a unique learning experience in a “college within a college” atmosphere intended to cultivate critical thinking, encourage civic and community engagement, and develop a synthesis of knowledge across disciplines. The generous endowment from Grover Robinson IV and the Robinson family grant our students opportunities beyond the traditional classroom. Our honors courses are created to improve transferability prospects while providing an enhanced college experience which includes an enriched curriculum, off-campus educational and cultural events, academic and career planning services, service learning opportunities, conferences, and opportunities for travel.
Each semester, field trips to regional museums, cultural events, and visits to historical sites are offered. In addition to these field trips, attendance at local events, such as the college’s Lyceum series, provides the Robinson Scholars a chance to observe world class performances and insightful seminars. During the summer, the Robinson Scholars have the opportunity for additional academic enrichment.
