The 荣誉项目 is a curriculum designed to meet the needs of students who have demonstrated their academic excellence and who wish to take challenging, 有趣的, even unusual courses to meet their general education requirements - the core courses you must take for a college degree. It is not necessary to take any extra courses or courses that will not apply to your current major or program of study. You will be able to choose from courses in 英语, 历史, 数学, 科学, 社会科学, Speech and Drama and the Humanities. View the available courses on the class schedule, under honors.
Why should I choose this program?
学生 in Honors courses will have a greater opportunity for interaction with other highly motivated students. Classes are held in the Honors Resource Center in a seminar setting. The Resource Center is also equipped with computers, 地图, and reference materials and is open to students for quiet study, 研究, 还有小组项目.
Honors courses will be noted on academic transcripts, and students who fulfill the Honors curriculum requirements will earn either an Honors Certificate or an Honors Diploma. 除了, participation in the 荣誉项目 will give students a stronger competitive edge when they transfer to four-year institutions.
How would these classes be different?
Although the materials for these Honors courses will be similar to those of their non-honors counterparts, the emphasis will be on active student learning. There will be a minimum of drill and repetition and a maximum of creative exchange and interaction. The courses will not require a greater amount of work, but will instead expose you to academically enriched content and a lively instructional method.
Because of the admissions criteria for this program, the faculty assume that the honors students are capable of A or B work. The courses are designed to challenge and interest bright students, not to penalize them. If you are capable of making an A in a non-honors section, you will be capable of making an A in the Honors course.
学生 interested in the Honors program must meet two of the three admissions criteria:
- A 3.3 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0规模
- The recommendation of an instructor or counselor
- An ACT score of 24, SAT score of 1100, COMPASS 90+ Writing score, or ACCUPLACER 写作成绩108+
