07 Sep Honors College — Dean Talks About Academic Experience — College of Charleston
Associate Dean of the Honors College Trisha Folds-Bennett talks about the academics in the Honors College and the things that set it apart from other programs.
The Honors College at the College of Charleston was established in 1979 as an Honors Program with just 26 students. Today, the program has evolved into an Honors College with close to 700 students from across the nation and the world. As our community of students, alumni, faculty, and staff continues to grow, our commitment to academic excellence remains at the core of our program. The Honors College curriculum is rooted in the liberal arts tradition and challenges students to view the world from multiple perspectives. Honors students take about 30 percent of their courses through the Honors College — courses that are small, seminar style, and led by preeminent faculty members whose work is well known and respected among their peers.
