Benefits of taking an honors course

  • Further develop students’ verbal and written communication skills.
  • Encourage independent discovery.
  • Foster analytical thinking and creativity.
They are not designed to require more work than standard courses. Instead these classes further challenge students by asking them to delve deeper into the subject matter. Writing is a significant part of each course.
