Our Honors Program is perfect for students who want to:
- work closely with faculty in an area of interest,
- thrive in a job market dominated by artificial intelligence and software automatization, and/or
- become a content creator for traditional publications and/or social media.
As our society continues to be shaped by technology, the ability to think critically and creatively will be the differentiator for good paying jobs, career advancement and entrepreneurial success.
Taking place in small class settings, our faculty-guided honors experiences are project-driven, provide hands-on learning opportunities in the latest scholarship, nurture
s creative thinking and help develop essential professional skills.
“Transferring to a four-year university can be extremely difficult, especially when talking about an Ivy League school, and a significant component of my application was taking honors courses. The Honors Department provides support, guidance, and the courses necessary for academic success.”

Notably, honors courses are no more time consuming than traditional ones, and lead to real-world outcomes.
By participating in honors courses, students can demonstrate actual accomplishments and in-demand skills to future employers, transfer institutions, or scholarships committees: “I have created…” instead of “I could do…”
Additionally, members of the honors learning community have access to study areas, priority registration, specialized advising and mentorship.
Students enrolled in honors classes can submit their papers for publication in Free Thought/Pensamiento Libre, the student scholarly journal of the Humanities Honor Society.
