What is Honors about?
At several American universities, the Honors Program education ignites passion for lifelong learning and encourages student creativity, collaboration, and leadership in the classroom and beyond.
It is characterized by in-class and extracurricular activities that are measurably broader, deeper, or more complex than comparable learning experiences typically found at institutions of higher education.
Honors curriculum serves as a laboratory for inventive and experiential education that can be implemented in the traditional classroom. Honors experiences include a distinctive learner-directed environment and philosophy, provide opportunities that are appropriately tailored to fit the institution's culture and mission, and frequently occur within a close community of students and faculty.
What do we offer?
We have tailor-made our tours so that they connect with the aims of the Honors program. We focus on the following:
- engage with the authentic culture of the different people groups in South Africa,
- constantly reflect on the role of social innovation and transformational leadership
- get a hands-on experience of community-based service projects and daily life in these communities,
- engage in personal conversations with different people – from leaders in their field to ordinary citizens; either just meet and greet or listen to different opinions,
- enhance your own critical thinking skills,
- explore the beauty and diversity of the breath-taking scenery and wildlife, landscapes, mountains and beaches
- get involved in a renovating project or community program if that is the goal of your trip
- apply skills learned inside the classroom in a different environment (for high school and college students).
