Humanities Honors Program

A three-year project to create a humanities honors program with thematic emphasis on Appalachian culture at Patrick Henry Community College.

Patrick Henry Community College (PHCC) proposes the creation of a Humanities Honors Program designed with thematic emphasis on Appalachian culture. This project will build upon the college's successful work in collaborative learning to increase student engagement. The project will design and implement a curriculum that offers opportunities for deeper learning and more rigorous standards, while focusing on topics of regional importance. Faculty will engage in a year of exploration into topics of regional importance and will meet to read, discuss, make cultural visits, and hear speakers related to regional issues in order to design and implement the proposed Humanities Honors Program with thematic focus on Appalachian culture.
