About the Honors Program

The College of New Jersey Honors Program provides challenging and stimulating opportunities to highly talented students who seek to enhance their educational experience at TCNJ. TCNJ College Honors is not a departmental program. It is a smaller community of like-minded scholars that serves students in all majors in all schools of the college.

Students complete the requirements of the Honors Program by creating an individualized curriculum that includes a wide range of courses options. Because these courses satisfy liberal learning, major, or minor requirements, completion of the Honors Program does not require students to take additional courses, only different ones. Classes are even smaller than typical TCNJ courses, and many of the courses are only available to Honors students.
