Commonwealth Honors Program

The Honors Program provides students and faculty with opportunities to enrich their learning experiences at Cape Cod Community College. We offer courses, advisement, scholarships, and support dedicated to the academic success of Honors students. Highly motivated students can pursue independent research, collaborate with faculty and fellow Honors students, develop critical thinking skills, and prepare for advancement to Commonwealth Honors Programs.

2020 Commonwealth Honors Reception

Every year, students in the Commonwealth Honors Program present their research to the College community at the Commonwealth Honors Reception. Check out the amazing presentations from our 2020 class here:
