About the Honors College

Our Mission
Inclusive excellence in higher education is the mission of the Honors College at Rutgers University-Newark. Our expansive interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum cultivates curiosity and fosters an environment of creativity and discovery, while nurturing engaged citizenry and community.

Our Approach
As part of an interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum, Honors College courses challenge our students to embrace advanced engagement and research in the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Our program culminates with a yearlong thesis project in which honors students produce a piece of original scholarship.

Inside and outside the classroom, we encourage our students to actively participate in the intellectual dialogues happening across our campus and within the many other communities to which they belong. To further foster a sense of citizenry, our students are involved in service work within these varied and diverse communities throughout their time in the Honors College.

We provide our students the guidance and support to succeed in their undergraduate careers and in preparation for their next steps. This includes advising from our Honors College team and guidance from faculty mentors.

We build relationships of integrity and trust with our students, faculty, and other units at the university, working together to support Rutgers-Newark's commitment to provide an exceptional university education in a diverse urban setting.

Curiosity. Creativity. Discovery. Excellence.
