Coordinated through the Honors Program, the number and variety of Honors courses at Tri-C grow each year. The current Honors curriculum covers many subject areas, and includes a number of offering options including regular classroom, Blended Learning, Honors independent study and Honors contracts. All Honors offerings are designated by an “H” at the end of the course number (for instance, ENG 101H, MATH 151H or PSY 201H). Any Tri-C student who meets the course prerequisite(s) may enroll in an Honors course; membership in the Honors Program is not required.
