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 rotate on a two year cycle so 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: This cycle rotates every two years.
