The Honors Program at Rappahannock Community College provides a challenging and rigorous environment for students who are looking to get the most from their educational experience. Thanks to the advanced level of learning, the students who take part in this course will earn special recognition.
Students can convert their standard class into an honors class by creating a project, which must be agreed to by both student an instructor. These projects can cover a variety of subjects, and all are closely monitored by program director, Dr. Tom Mosca III.
Taking part in the Honors Program can pay big dividends — just ask RCC graduate Yohana Flores. The 2010 alumna took part in the Honors Program and participated in a scholarly paper on warming trends in the Chesapeake Bay. She eventually went on to the University of Richmond, but credits her rigorous RCC experience to helping her find her way.
“RCC was a very satisfying outlet for my energies,” she says. “I grew into a mature adult with the ability not only to set her mind on a task but to complete it in due time, while enjoying the experience of gaining knowledge.”
