JKW School of Honors

The Judith K. Winn School of Honors is an academic program offering advanced course work to the college's highest achieving, most motivated students: incoming freshmen, transfer and continuing students. Taught by scholarly faculty with a commitment to Honors, our curriculum provides select students with an enriched academic experience to foster intellectual growth and enhance their competitiveness in admissions to excellent universities.

The School of Honors offers:

  • Smaller, highly interactive and challenging classes
  • Highly motivated peers and experienced faculty
  • Field trips to four-year colleges
  • Transfer seminars
  • Use of Honors Lounge
  • Honors credits recorded on your transcript
  • Honors diploma
  • Honors awards

The Honors program typically offers close to thirty Honors sections of mostly General Education courses and the schedule reflects the course sequence as well. For example, if we offer a LIT 203 World Literature till 1650 in the fall, its sequence, LIT 204 World Literature from 1650 till the Present, will be offered in the spring. We also make an attempt to pair courses by scheduling World History and World Literature the same semester, if possible. 

The current Honors Course schedule and the course availability can be found in WebAdvisor.

“Honors courses at Bergen took me to a higher level of learning. I feel well prepared to take on the coursework at a four-year college.” Christine Jones

“If someone had told me that I would be completing my degree in an Ivy League school - I am at Columbia University - I probably would have dismissed it as a joke. Students ask me what my secret is… My answer to them and to you is simple - the School of Honors.” Lee Ifhar
