How is an Honors contract/section different from a regular level class?
Honors contracts allow students to be enrolled in a regular level class, but be mentored by an Honors faculty member to produce a product that demonstrates a high degree of scholarship and critical thinking. In addition to the project, students will be required to make an oral presentation of their research.
Honors sections cover essentially the same material as regular level classes but strive to create an enriched, intensified learning experience for the student. Honors classes are usually smaller in number than regular level classes.
How does successfully completing an Honors course benefit a student?
In an Honors course, a student benefits from an enhanced learning environment. Honors students are given the opportunity to enrich themselves both academically and culturally. Upon completion of the course, your transcript will reflect the Honors nature of the class. In addition, some Texas colleges and universities transfer Lone Star College-North Harris's Honors courses and count those courses toward graduation with honors.
Can a student enroll in just one Honors course?
Yes. Honors courses or sections have open enrollment provided the student gets instructor approval.
