Honors Program

Montgomery College is committed to providing high-ability, highly motivated students with stimulating and challenging opportunities both within and outside the classroom. 

Honors Program Mission

The Honors Program mission is to:

  • Attract and nurture outstanding students;
  • Provide an academic environment which fosters growth, critical thinking and multicultural perspectives; and
  • Encourage the development of community relationships and interpersonal skills.

 

The Honors Program at Montgomery College is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council, a national organization of honors programs at two and four year colleges and universities, and the Maryland Collegiate Honors Council. Montgomery College is also a member of the Beacon Conference, a conference for student scholars at two-year colleges. 

The program was created for high-ability students seeking exciting and academically rewarding experiences.  It allows students to discover and develop their talents and interests through:

  • Honors courses
  • Seminars
  • Independent study opportunities
  • Internships
  • Service learning
  • Social and cultural activities

Students also benefit from enhanced opportunities to transfer to four-year colleges and universities with increased eligibility for merit-based scholarship aid. 

The collegewide Honors Program features three special programs: The Macklin Buiness Institute, Montgomery Scholars, and Renaissance Scholars.  See the Honors Program structure for more details.
