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, sharing, and in-depth exploration of a variety of topics. 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 usually 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"; "The Psychology of Romance"; "The Human Drive for Community"; "Women Who Kill"; "Mythology and Music"; and "The Graphic Novel."

Additionally, there are Honors courses taught in the disciplines, such as Ethics, Introduction to Sociology, Perspectives on Tolkien, Composition I and Introduction to Literature.  It is also possible to have a non-Honors course bear Honors credit.  There are numerous ways to explore your potential as an Honors Studies student.

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, Dr. Trista Merrill, at 585.785.1357 or (especially during the summer months) at
