AN ASSESSMENT ON MIAMI DADE COLLEGE

It was close to home and included the degree I needed. I had beforehand experience with Dual Enrollment. My mother is also part of the alumni. Due to it being in close proximity to my home address, my parents needn't worry about me falling ill and being far away, be it from physical illness or homesickness. The curriculum is also brilliant.


Course Curriculum - 

The curriculum is top of the line despite Miami Dade College being a community college.

COLLEGE: AN EXPERIENCE

This college was closest to my home and the best economically. It has a flexible schedule and I can save money on gas and housing expenses. The college, for the most part, has resources.


Course Curriculum - 

It pertains to what I'm interested in. Some of the basic curricula don't require extensive teaching. A lot of the classes are more like tests and not teaching. You have to teach yourself to pass the class.

ALL OF THE REMARKS THAT I HAVE FOR THE MIAMI DADE COLLEGE HONORS PROGRAM ARE OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE.

Small class sizes despite being the largest higher education institution in the US. I also received grants that covered my cost of tuition and books which was really helpful and allow me to dedicate all of my time to my studies.


Course Curriculum - 

The curriculum for the associate degree program in biology Was fairly straightforward. Two biology classes, two chemistry classes, two English classes, psychology, philosophy, and several humanities were required in order to graduate.
