FLCC Honors Studies

Reach your full potential.

Join other curious, highly motivated students in small seminar classes for an inspiring scholastic and social community. Honors Studies seminars are held at FLCC’s Honors House, and they are designed to engage you intellectually and artistically. These courses encourage reflection, creation and sharing. Participation in the Honors Studies program will help you grow as an intellectual, and it will aid you in transferring to a four-year school.

Honors seminars are team-taught by faculty from different fields and are topic-oriented based on the interest and expertise of the team. Recent topics have included "Science and Religion in Modern Life"; "Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious in American Literature and Art"; "The Human Drive for Community"; "Popular Culture"; "Internet, Culture, and Identity"; "Mythology and Music"; and "The Graphic Novel."

A three-credit honors retreat, known as The Hearth Project, is offered each Spring Semester. Join other students in taking advantage of the unique opportunity to explore philosophy, literature and the arts immersed in the natural setting of FLCC’s Muller Field Station on Honeoye Lake. The Hearth Project is a weekend residential retreat that encourages reflection, creation and sharing.

If you are eager for such an opportunity, consider Honors Studies at FLCC. Courses are open to full- and part-time students. For more information, contact the Director of Honors Studies, Curtis Nehring Bliss, at 585.394.FLCC, ext. 7367.
