Honors College


Director: Timothy Martin, Ph.D.

The Honors College provides a four-year course of study with provocative new courses designed for honors students. During the first two years, students experience three honors seminars in a variety of topics from the sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Students work with professors who are among the leading experts in their fields. Since honors seminar topics are selected from proposals submitted by Rutgers faculty, the classroom instruction includes information that will appear in tomorrow's textbooks. Students also may submit proposals for honors seminars. Each year, Rutgers University-Camden honors faculty teach approximately 15 seminars.

The honors seminars involve weekly reading assignments and extensive classroom discussion. Because attendance in each seminar is limited to between 10 and 15 students, students receive more extensive and personal attention than is possible in most college courses. Classes often meet in an informal setting where roundtable discussions are held in a comfortable classroom. Written work often takes the form of essays and papers rather than examinations. Honors faculty frequently provide their students with special bibliographies and offer them opportunities for independent study. Recent seminar offerings have included: The 1950s, Religion in the New Millennium, Classic Legal Cases, Science Fiction/Science Fact, Remembering Vietnam, and The New Edge City. The most prestigious faculty members on campus participate in the program. Many of these professors have won Rutgers' top teaching awards and have published widely in their disciplines.

After the first two years, honors students complete the program through Experience Projects and through approved activities and service. See the Honors College website for details.
