Honors Programs

As part of its ongoing commitment to academic excellence, Rutgers University offers numerous honors programs that provide outstanding students with challenges beyond those found in regular course work.

Many of the undergraduate colleges offer specially designed honors programs which involve introductory seminars for well-prepared first-year students. Selection into a college honors program is based on SAT or ACT scores and high school record, and is at the invitation of each college. Students conclude their college honors programs by taking the honors courses offered by their majors.

In addition, exceptional upper-class students who are not in college honors programs may be selected to participate in honors seminars offered by the department of their major. Information on college honors programs may be found in the college sections of this catalog; departmental honors programs are described under each major.

Students who participate in honors programs receive a high degree of individual attention from faculty. Seminars, tutorials, lectures, discussions, and independent research afford an opportunity for sophisticated scholarship and growth in self-understanding and also may assist Rutgers students in pursuing their special interests and professional ambitions after graduation.
