Honors Courses and Faculty

School of General studies

Welcome to Stockton Honors


Required Honors Courses

Honors students can major in any Stockton undergraduate school and major. Their 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.  

"Through involvement in the Honors Program, I have had access to many great resources and have even formed many great friendships. I have been given access to helpful advice, assistance from faculty members, unique and rewarding courses, dedicated staff members, Honors mentors, the Honors Center, and so much more. "
-- Adam P,  Doctoral student in Physical Therapy

"As a nursing major, college is not necessarily the easiest thing to deal with, especially when you are trying to balance school, college, and friends. But the Honors Program has helped me survive. It helped me adjust to the college life, manage my studies, meet life-long friends, and get involved in my community. There may be extra classes, but they are all very fun, the professors are fantastic, and I love being able to incorporate them into my schedule."
