Students sketching in Honors Learning Community

Honors Program

The Honors Program offers opportunities for intellectual challenge to students in every discipline. For the student who excels academically, plans to transfer to a selective college or university and is interested in gaining critical skills for the workplace, the Honors Program provides challenging courses with a strong emphasis on reading, writing and critical thinking across disciplines. Currently the Honors Program offers interdisciplinary Honors Learning Communities (LCs), Honors colloquia, as well as a stand-alone Honors course in English 101.  Other stand-alone Honors courses are currently being developed with the goal of piloting 2-3 new courses in Fall 2015.  Interested students may also use the program's resources to design individualized Honors projects as add-ons to almost any HCC course.
