  • What is an Honors credit in a regular course project or Honors project?

    An Honors project is an extra project that students can do for any of their current courses. It takes an entire semester to complete and the student and the professor of their choosing would decide on the scope of the project. An Honors project must be more challenging than a regular project and it must be related to the course that the student chooses. Once the student has completed all requirements, they will receive Honors credit noted on their official physical transcript. 

    Please view our Curriculum page for more information. 

  • How do I get started with an Honors project?

    Students should start by asking one of their current professors if they would like to give them an Honors project. If the professor is unsure of what an Honors project is, then the student can show them the Honors in a regular course contract and/or refer them to the Honors Scholars Program coordinator, Christopher Navarrete’s email address. If the professor is willing to give the student an Honors project and become that student’s mentor, then they will both decide on what the project will be about.

    Please view our Curriculum page for more information. 

  • Do Honors projects have to be research related? 

    No, Honors projects can be research or non-research related. For example, students can create an Honors project about photography or writing an original computer program. 

    Please view our Curriculum page for more information. 

  • How do I register for an Honors course?

    Students can register for Honors courses through CUNYfirst; it is the same process as registering for normal courses. Note that Honors courses will have the letter “H” after the course number.
