The Honors Program has given me extensive opportunities to pursue an academic challenge in my field of study in elementary education. While in my everyday classes, I learn teaching methods and educational theory. In my honors work I get to extend my learning by investigating complex, interdisciplinary concepts through inquiry-based research projects.
I’m planning on going to grad school to get my MBA after I finish at Florida College. The Honors Program has helped me learn how to research, compile data, and present it in an understandable fashion. It’s also a great résumé builder and a great way to showcase your gifts.
The Honors Program and the professors involved have pushed me to figure out how my degree can connect with many other fields of study. They also pushed me to understand why I’m interested in marketing, exploring what section of that field I would most enjoy working in when I graduate.
