APU’s majors are organized through Institutes, to purposefully and meaningfully advance APU’s vision, mission, and values. The framework of learning at APU is built on five competencies interwoven through all academic degree programs: effective communication, ethical engagement, scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and cultural/historical perspectives. These essential competencies result in the attainment of critical skills and wide-ranging knowledge useful across a multitude of professions and industries.
Early Honors Dual Credit
The Early Honors Program (EHP) at APU is a full-time, dual-credit program for high school seniors seeking to get a head start on college. EHP students engage in actual college-level coursework, have the option to live on campus, and if successful, will graduate high school as college sophomores. Applicants admitted to the EHP may also be granted automatic full admission to the undergraduate program of their choice* upon the successful completion of the EHP.
