About Honors Courses

Honors Courses at LSC-CyFair offer an enhanced college experience for students who have a high ability to do scholarly work. Honors students enjoy classes conducted as seminars centered around open discussions, collaborative learning and active participation. Honors Faculty have been specifically selected because of their dedication to the principles of Honors education, including developing a mentor relationship with each student in his/her class.

Honors credit is earned through Honors courses or Honors Independent Research with faculty mentors who are committed to an open-ended approach to learning. Students have many opportunities to contribute extensively and creatively through small group interaction, seminars, laboratories, oral reports, special research topics, informed discussion and both individual and group projects.
