Canada College Honors Program

Canada College is about to start a brand new Honors Program. Patty Dilko, Honors Program coordinator at Canada College, gave an interview for our blog.
Wednesday morning Patty meets with Sofia in her office ready to talk about this program and its benefits.

"The idea of the Honors Program, came from different places" Patty explains, "On one hand, highly motivated students were eager to engage in more challenging courses and faculty felt the need to work with these students to fill up some academic and intellectual gaps. On the other hand, counselors were realizing that the Honors Programs would double Canada's articulation agreements with four year institutions."

This program offers highly motivated students the opportunity to do research and prepare for the upper division classes. It will also allow students to have intensive academic experiences.

"This Honors Program validates the college commitment to help their students to successfully transfer" says Patty.

At the beginning the program will be as simple as possible, but it is very likely that it would grow and evolve with time.

Any student who meets the prerequisites can register and participate in the honors experience. The classes offered through this program are not shown in the schedule, but are listed in WebSMART and students can enroll in them immediately.
