What is the Quanta-Honors College?
Daytona State’s Quanta-Honors College is a learning community designed to offer an alternative to regular college classes for highly motivated students who value academic achievement and want the competitive advantage that an honors degree provides.
In Quanta-Honors, you will take many of your general education courses in learning community clusters. You’ll still be able to take electives and pre-major courses outside Quanta-Honors. Each cluster is made up of two or three courses which are integrated around a theme. Recent themes have included "Monsters," "Radical Communities," "Plastic Paradise," "Myth and the Hero's Journey," and "Original Research Edition."
The classes are challenging, but you’ll have a lot of support to make sure that you do well. You’ll have three professors in the classroom every day, and dedicated tutors and librarians. You’ll do much of your work in small groups and will have plenty of time to discuss, explore new ideas and apply these ideas to real-world problems.
By the Numbers
The Quanta Program began in 1983 and became the Quanta-Honors College in 2015. Our students join a learning community tradition stretching back almost four decades.
Each fall, a new cohort of approximately seventy students begins its honors journey, sticking together through graduation four semesters later.
Every Quanta-Honors faculty member has taught at Daytona State College for at least a decade, bringing years of experience and proven teaching strategies to each class meeting.
