  • What is the Monroe College Honors Program?

    Established in 2004, the Monroe College Honors Program provides our most academically accomplished students the opportunity to engage in advance coursework, participate in experiential learning activities, serve the local community through volunteer work and become part of a special community at Monroe College.

    What will happen if I join the Honors Program?

    You will be exposed to a variety of special opportunities, including opportunities to:

    • take advanced classes in both general education and in your major
    • go on field trips like seeing a Broadway show
    • travel to regional and national conferences to showcase the Honors Program
    • engage in community service activities
    • network and meet people from all walks of life

    The Monroe College Honors Program is not just about doing more in your classes—it’s about being a part of a community of people who share your passion and drive to learn.  

    The diplomas and transcripts of Honors Program graduates bear the symbol of Honors distinction, and graduates are recognized at commencement.  An Honors diploma is distinct from Latin honors (cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude), and Honors students will earn an Honors diploma with Latin honors.

    A Message from the Chairperson

    Graduating from college in and of itself is quite an achievement. And when one enters the job market, he or she is competing with hundreds of individuals who hold their Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees. So, what can set you apart from the rest? It is, without doubt, individuals who graduate with an Honors diploma, alongside their Associate’s and/or Bachelor’s degrees, find more doors open to them. The Honors Program at Monroe College is a small community of individuals who love to learn. But Honors does more than focus on academic excellence. We enjoy going out and giving back to our community, socializing and improving our interpersonal skills, and having fun all the while.  

    Welcome to the Honors Program at Monroe College. We can’t wait to welcome you to our Honors community.

    Professor Kathryn M. MacDonald
