The Honors Program is designed to enhance the intellectual experience of students through enrollment in Honors courses, independent study options, and increased contact with Honors students at Phoenix College and within the Maricopa District. Students who have met the Honors Program requirements are eligible to enroll in honors classes and require written approval from the Honors Program Office.
There are two different types of classes that you can take as an Honors student. The first type of class is the Honors Program Section. These classes are offered concurrently within a regular section but include additional honors project requirements. Your instructor will provide you the opportunity to design an honors project that will enable you to critically think through the course subject matter. The second type is the Honors Only Cohort class which is comprised only of Honors students. Participating in an Honors Only Cohort class provides a sense of community, encourages independent learning, and helps develop leadership skills. For more information, please contact the Honors Program Office at 602.285.7305.
