Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College will offer the first course in a new honors program during the fall semester, according to program coordinator Robert Gipe.
The course, Introduction to Contemporary Thought, is part of a program for students throughout Southeast’s service area. The honors program is designed for students with interest in the humanities and social sciences who are looking for challenging courses. The program is open to all students regardless of major or course of study and will be integrated into the college’s associate degree programs. The program will include guest speakers, accelerated classes, travel, and community-based learning.
The 2010-2011 academic year will be a pilot year for the program, during which students and faculty will work together to design the program and create the best possible learning community within the program. Classes off ered through the honors program during the fall of 2010 and the spring of 2011 will be open both to incoming freshman and returning Southeast students.
