“Honors is more than just a set of classes, it’s an experience. My best friends today are the ones I met in my honors classes and on my honors floor freshman year.” Sean Marotta, philosophy major
The College of New Jersey Honors Program provides a high level of challenge and stimulation to talented students who seek a broad educational experience. TCNJ College Honors is not a departmental program. It serves students in all majors in all schools of the college.
Honors courses meet liberal learning requirements, so students in the program may complete part of the liberal learning requirements with courses exclusive to the Honors Program. Thus, completion of the Honors Program does not require students to take additional courses, only different ones. Classes are small, encouraging interaction with professors and other talented students.
Some honors courses are team-taught by a pair of faculty members from different disciplines.
Graduates of the program receive special recognition on their official transcript. Completion of the Honors Program is a mark of distinction that is valued by professional schools and graduate schools, as well as by prospective employers.
