Honors program offers students accelerated success

The School of Liberal Arts and Sciences has incentives for MATC students who excel and exceed in their studies and academic achievements. It is not to be confused with “Honor Society” or, graduating with “Honors.”
“We want four-year colleges and transfer colleges to want our students,” said Christine Ryan, Ph.D., the Honors Program coordinator. “We also want our students to have the greatest advantage possible, along with achieving honors.”
“As the Honors coordinator, I review and approve all Honors Contracts,” Ryan stated. “A copy of the contract is given to the student, the instructor, and lastly, me. Upon completion of the project, a copy of the project, along with an evaluation by the instructor must be forwarded to the Honors coordinator for final processing and approval.
“Lastly, the project may be assigned in addition to, or in lieu of, the requirements of the non-honors students in the course,” Ryan said.
Students who are interested must also follow these guidelines: The MATC Honors Program recommends that the honors project offer challenging, experiential tasks, which may include, but may not be limited to, the following:
Research: library or field
Oral and/or written communication
Critical thinking
