Tennessee Governor’s School students set to arrive at UT Martin

The Tennessee Governor’s School for the Agricultural Sciences begins on May 28 at the University of Tennessee at Martin, and the Tennessee Governor’s School for the Humanities begins the following Sunday, June 5.

Both programs bring selected high school students from across the state to UT Martin to take college courses and participate in a variety of activities. Interested students must complete an application process and receive an invitation to attend. The Tennessee Governor’s School for the Agricultural Sciences has 35 participants, and the Tennessee Governor’s School for the Humanities anticipates 54 to attend.

The Tennessee Governor’s School for the Agricultural Sciences is one of only three agriculture governor’s schools in the country. The program exposes students to courses in natural resource management and animal science and provides opportunities for hands-on interactions with working crop and livestock operations.

The Tennessee Governor’s School for the Humanities, founded in 1986, is the original governor’s school program. Students may receive college credit in art history, political science or philosophy and choose from additional non-credit courses in English literature, history, music, diplomacy, and a selection of four enrichment seminar activities.
