‘Focus on College Experience’
The Commonwealth Honors Program at Middlesex Community College offers unique learning opportunities for students who elect to study at a more advanced level.
MCC’s Commonwealth Honors Program is part of an integrated network of honors programs throughout the Massachusetts public college and university system. It offers a variety of honors course options, as well as opportunities for students to master research and presentation techniques, and engage in extra and co-curricular activities, including field trips and guest lectures.
“The Commonwealth Honors Program is a great place for students who want to be fully engaged in their intellectual enterprise to learn as much as possible about the world around them -- and focus on the collegiate experience,” said MCC History Professor David Kalivas, CHP director.
To graduate as Commonwealth Honors Scholars, Middlesex students are expected to complete a minimum of three honors courses, one of which must be an interdisciplinary, team-taught seminar. Students must also participate in the annual Honors Conference, a public opportunity for students to display and explain their research.
Honors graduates transfer to top schools, including UMass Amherst, Boston University, Chapman University, Columbia University, UMass Lowell, Salem State University, Skidmore College and University of Virginia, among others.
Students who complete their degrees through CHP are guaranteed transfer to other Commonwealth Honors Programs at any state college or university, or can enhance their applications for other four-year public or private institutions.
