WHAT DOES HONORS COURSE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Honors student

An honors student is a person recognized for achieving high grades or high marks in their course work in the United States. In the US honors students may refer to ▪ Students recognized for their academic achievement on lists published periodically throughout the school year, known as honor rolls, varying from school to school, and from enlarged different levels of education. ▪ Students enrolled in designated honors courses or honors program. ▪ Students who are members of the National Honor Society or other honor society. Honors students are often recognized for their achievements. A student who has made numerous appearances on the honor roll may be awarded with some form of academic letter, or any other form of notification. A similar concept to honor rolls exists in colleges and universities in the United States, known as the Dean's List. In many other countries the meanings of the academic phrase honors or honours come in different forms. Generally, 'honours' is not actually a de jure degree itself, it is used to indicate a distinction with which an undergraduate degree was earned. Usually, Honours degrees are four-year programs.
