Students in the Berkshire Honors Scholar Program contribute to a diverse community of learning at BCC. The program provides a creative and challenging student-driven experience, designed for highly-motivated students who want to realize their full potential pursuing the highest level of academic achievement possible at BCC.
Students in the program work together both in and out of the classroom. There are opportunities to get together as a group several times each semester. Enjoy lunches, coffees, and informal gab sessions; discuss career choice, college transfer options, and how to navigate the College. Students can meet, rest, or study in the dedicated Honors Center on campus.
Above all, the program offers a chance to take intellectually engaging courses, with smaller class sizes, in the company of other students who care deeply about learning. To graduate as an Honors Scholar you will take 9 credits of honors courses. These courses also count toward your general education and program requirements so you do not have to take "extra" courses.
