The Honors Program offers a unique opportunity for high ability students in AA or AS transfer degree programs to thrive intellectually in a comfortable and challenging academic environment. In small classes of 15 or fewer, Honors students, through creative and stimulating teaching with professors as mentors and facilitators, will assume responsibility for their learning.
The program provides the opportunity for highly motivated students to expand the limits of their intellectual, cultural and social horizons in a caring, stimulating atmosphere.
