The Honors College seeks to prepare highly talented and motivated students to face the 21st century by providing them with the intellectual perspectives and critical skills needed to exercise responsible leadership at every level of their lives. 

Our Curriculum

Honors students have the privilege of taking an alternative General Education curriculum. In place of the standard classes, Honors students complete two year-long courses that introduce great texts and ideas. Students also take Honors seminars on more specific topics. In their final year, all students undertake an individual research project on a topic of interest to them that culminates in an honors thesis.

Pre-Professional and Joint Degree Programs

Honors College students are able to complete double majors and pre-professional programs including three-year joint programs with distinguished partner institutions. Giving you all the benefits of an Adelphi education, with a direct path to a prestigious graduate program.
