Overview of Honors Program
Honors Program

For over 85 years, Long Beach City College has developed innovative educational programs to serve the public. In 1980, the college established the Honors Program to better serve intellectually ambitious, high-achieving students. Today, the program is an important element of the college’s curriculum, and its graduates have proven records of success in completing baccalaureate degrees as well as professional and graduate school degrees.

Honors classes are general education in nature. They are more intensive than non-Honors classes, encouraging and rewarding critical thought and individual research. Since class sizes are significantly smaller than non-Honors classes, students enjoy more individualized attention from their professors and deeper engagement with their fellow Honors students. Honors classes delve deeper into the academic subjects, all of which provides a more stimulating, enriching educational experience.

Graduates of the Honors Program receive priority consideration when applying to UCLA, UCI, the University Honors Program at CSULB, and many other baccalaureate institutions (

The Honors Program is housed in the library, Room L162, on the LAC campus.
