Honors Programs

  • NJCU offers two distinct honors programs that provide free tuition and other benefits to a select group of outstanding undergraduate students. First, NJCU offers a general education honors program available to qualifying students studying any of NJCU’s undergraduate majors. The second offering is an honors program developed specifically for qualifying students who are business majors.

    These highly competitive honors programs provide an enriching educational experience through which students enjoy challenging and engaging interdisciplinary studies, undertake leadership roles, and contribute to a culturally complex society.

    Both programs are cohort based, featuring small classes and personalized faculty support. Students are challenged by a specialized, rigorous curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking through discussion, writing, experiential learning, public speaking, and research. By working closely with their honors peers, students will study in a group environment of academic equals and will build a network of colleagues that will last a lifetime.

    Admission to the honors programs requires a strong record of academic achievement, submission of a short writing sample and participation in an interview.
