Required Honors Courses

Honors students can major in any Stockton undergraduate school and major. Their five Honors courses fulfill part of their General Studies requirement, ensuring that students experience the breadth of the liberal arts as a part of their college education. The courses feature innovative teaching from dedicated professors from a range of disciplines. They are only open to Honors students, and they are designed to stimulate student discussion, critical thinking, and creative expression in the arts, humanities, and sciences.

By successfully completing the required Honors courses, students are also completing their General Studies ("G") courses required for graduation.  


"The Honors G-course curriculum fulfills requirements for graduation from Stockton, and we are able to interact with Honors students, not only in our own graduating class, but in others as well.""
-- Tori M, Nursing major
