The University Honors Program offers gifted and motivated students the opportunity to pursue a course of study combining a broad liberal education with guided study in a major field.
Students are able to pursue specialized internships, to take advantage of the cultural and educational resources of New York City and New Jersey, and to undertake independent research and to prepare a senior honors thesis. Guided by a faculty mentor, the students focus on their honors thesis during their senior year and present their theses in April.
