Quincy College Honors Program

Beginning in September 2017, Quincy College will offer an Honors Program. The Program will initially proceed on the basis of adding honors content to existing courses. The content will consist of more complex and sophisticated work/assessments than that required of other students in those classes.

The next step in the Honors curriculum will be to develop and have approved, during the fall 2017 semester, honors specific seminars of a type and content as yet to be determined.

Once a large enough cohort has been established, Honors specific courses will be developed.
