The Minor in the Brock Scholars Program is a four-year interdisciplinary program in the UTC Honors College where academically gifted and motivated students can pursue an education that nurtures their intellects, sense of social responsibility, and drive to lead. Our mission is threefold:

  • To attract the most academically-qualified students to The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga by offering uniquely enriching interdisciplinary experiences, special opportunities for advancement, a supportive community of scholars,and a purposeful path to leadership;
  • To involve our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners in a spirit of intellectual inquiry, social responsibility, and cross-disciplinary understanding;
  • To create a ready team of diversely talented, inquiring, and collaborative young scholars who will provide the University with fresh ideas and ways to excellence.

The Brock Scholars curriculum consists of specially designed and enhanced seminar courses, most of which fulfill general education requirements, as well as experiential learning courses that give students opportunities to develop and practice essential skills while challenging themselves beyond the classroom. The flexible nature of our curriculum allows students from any academic major to participate in the program.

All Brock Scholars are admitted via an application process that is in addition to the university’s central application process. Brock Scholars complete between 25 and 31 credit hours in honors to complete their minor.
