    An algebra $A$ is homogeneous if its automorphism group acts transitively on the set of one dimensional subspaces of $A$. In this paper the structure of all three dimensional homogeneous algebra is determined. These fall into three classes: (1) truncated quaternion algebras over formally real Pythagorean fields; (2) an algebra over $GF(2)$ in which $x^2 = x$ for all $x$ in $A$, and (3) two algebras over $GF(2)$ which are generated by each of their nonzero elements. The automorphism group is determined in each case.
