Honors Program Courses

Honors Program courses provide an enriched and unique educational experience with small classes in a seminar format. Honors Program classes are designed specifically for those students with the potential for high achievement.

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 are advised to be eligible to take ENGWR 300 or 480 to succeed in Honors courses.  Completion of Honors Program Registration Form.

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