TAP/Honors Curriculum

hide

TAP/Honors curriculum has been developed to parallel the general education requirements for most four-year colleges and universities, including the University of California and the California State University systems. TAP/Honors course sections are designed to produce a more rigorous educational experience through stimulating peer interaction and enhanced course content with an emphasis on the development of critical thinking, reading and writing. There are three ways students can take honors courses:

All Honors Sections

Every semester TAP offers up to five sections of honors courses. These courses are scheduled to cover all five IGETC areas, and so that students can plan ahead to meet their TAP requirements. Courses are smaller in size offering increased student/professor interaction and a highly motivated environment.  Note: subject to change.

Students can use two contracts for the 15-unit program and three contracts for an 18-unit program. To do this, a student must be currently enrolled in TAP and the course must have an approved TAP addendum on file. Contracts are not permitted for a course that is offered as a dedicated All Honors section in the same term (see table above). Students must adhere to contract deadlines that are stated on the form. Approval of all contracts is at the discretion of the TAP Director.
