The BCTC Honors Program seeks to provide an intellectually challenging college experience for students who are self-motivated and seek a higher level of knowledge. We provide a unique learning opportunity for students with outstanding intellectual ability, diverse interests, and strong motivation. Our goal is to enhance the learning environment for BCTC students through a combination of a special honors course, honors sections of regular courses, and out of class experiences.
