The TCNJ Honors Program was founded in 1978 to offer students an enhanced educational experience within the College.  It is overseen by the Honors Program Council, which is made up of faculty, staff, and students from all across campus, and the Honor Program Director.  It is a College-wide program that is not associated with any single department or school.

The Honors Program supports a group of student and faculty scholars within the larger TCNJ community, by providing a 3-pillared framework of course and extracurricular opportunities for those who seek to think deeply, broaden ways of thinking, explore subjects in new and creative ways, and to make a purposeful difference in their lives.

The Program enhances cross-cultural and disciplinary thinking through a honors course offerings, non-honors course enhancements, honors projects, and through courses that team-taught by a faculty members from different disciplines.
