MCCC Honors Programhttp://www.mccc.edu/programs_degree_honors.shtml
The MCCC Honors Program is an enriched college experience for highly motivated, intellectually curious, scholastically exceptional students. Honors students engage in qualitatively more challenging academic work than students in the standard curriculum.
Every honors course emphasizes critical thinking, analytical writing, effective speaking, interactive learning, collaborative learning, engagement with primary source materials, and information literacy. In addition, honors courses may include opportunities for independent research, service learning, or fieldwork.
The MCCC Honors Program is not a separate degree program or major; students matriculate in any program of study. Students graduating from MCCC with the honors designation will find themselves exceptionally well prepared for transfer to four-year colleges and universities and for success in their transfer institutions and career paths.
Students are evaluated based on a variety of factors: high school GPA, class rank, SAT scores, ACT scores, MCCC placement test scores, and level of interest. Advisors will help eligible students self-select into the Mercer Honors Program when they register for classes.
