提交的 on May 6, 2022 – 2:33 pm

哈佛希尔, 硕士(5月2日, 2022年)——今年秋天, Northern Essex 社区 College 学生 will have twice as many options for 荣誉 类. Seven 荣誉 类 and one seminar will be offered, with in-person 类 in 哈佛希尔 and 劳伦斯, and one that will meet entirely online.

Any student can register and take these 类 regardless of their GPA. However, 学生 who take three 荣誉 类 and maintain a GPA of at least 3.2 will be designated as members of the Commonwealth Honors Program. That means if they transfer to a state university, they’re automatically enrolled in the Commonwealth Honors program t在这里, and their 荣誉 courses transfer easily. “MA is the only state that has this seamless transition from the community colleges to the state universities,” says Honors Program Coordinator Ginger Hurajt.

Commonwealth Honors Program participants also get the chance to showcase their hard work at the state level. Four 与之 学生 just presented their 荣誉 projects at the virtual Massachusetts Undergraduate Research Conference. 心理学 student Emily Ellis’ project looks at how connections between brain function and the immune system can be used in the development of treatment plans for Alzheimer’s patients. “I have had a great time learning about this, though it was difficult, this research has intrigued me to study this for a career,埃利斯说:“.

文科 major April Richer of Dover, NH is working on two projects: the first is an oral history of Dover, documenting life during the height of the pandemic and the other examines the role of women during the January 6 insurrection. Avery Hochheiser is an 早期的大学 student, meaning she’s taking 类 while still in high school. Her project looks at the use of CRISPR, a form of genetic engineering, and whether its use should be considered an ethical practice. “This is graduate level work. We’re asking a lot, and these are very ambitious 学生,” says Hurajt. April Richer agrees: “It has been challenging, 和疲惫, however it has greatly increased my abilities as a student.”
