Welcome to the Tennessee Governor's School for the Humanities on the Web.

 

A four-week summer program built on the School’s rich tradition as Tennessee's first Governor's School, the Governor's School for the Humanities offers rising high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to earn six semester credit hours from UT Martin.  GSH celebrates the expression of who we are, what we believe, how we know what we know, where we’ve been as a society, and the power of originality and ideas in creating shared communities.

 

With 54 gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors from across Tennessee and a dedicated faculty and staff, the 2013 Governor's School for the Humanities was very successful.  On a scale of 1 through 5, with 5 being “Excellent,” the Scholars rated the overall program 4.74.  More importantly, the grades earned were the highest in the nine years academic credit has been awarded.

 

We are already busily planning the 2014 program, which is scheduled for June 1 – 28, 2014.  Details will be added when available, but we anticipate that the 2014 application will be available September 15, 2013.  Completed applications must be postmarked no later than December 7, 2013.
