Honors Scholar Courses

Honors courses provide an enriched and unique educational experience with small classes in a seminar format.

Students challenge themselves intellectually in three-unit courses in a variety of disciplines.  All courses are transferable and meet the general education/breadth requirements.  Honors students have easy access to their instructors and are expected to utilize critical thinking and research skills throughout their course work.

Eligibility:  Students with a 3.0 GPA or better based on high school or college transcripts and are eligible to take ENGWR 300, or upon application to the instructor, may take Honors courses.

Students completing 15 units of Honors qualified courses with at least a 3.2 GPA are designated “Honors Scholars” at graduation and on their transcripts, and qualify for the UCLA TAP and other transfer alliance programs.
