Honors

Honors is for students who are seeking out Pima’s most enriching academic experiences as well as opportunities to give back by serving their community.

We are talking about intensive research, a peer-reviewed paper or project, and presentations to a range of audiences. It’s all about building critical thinking and communication skills that you’ll use for a lifetime, whether you are seeking a job upon graduation, or intend to transfer in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.

Honors Content courses are available in Biology, Economics, History, Literature, Mathematics, Psychology, Spanish and Writing. Also, any course above 100-level, including occupational courses, can be an Honors class through the signing of an Honors Contract.

In addition, you can complete an Honors Certificate on top of your degree or certificate. That academic journey begins with an Honors Colloquium (a colloquium is an academic conference or seminar) that introduces students to scholarly research, writing and conversation.

All you need to do is maintain at least a 3.5 GPA.

Annual Honors ceremony

Each May, Honors students gather to celebrate accomplishments, community service and leadership activities, and to give thanks to those within and outside Pima for their support. The ceremony also is an opportunity to share research findings – often on topics that directly impact society -- with their fellow students and the community.
