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.

have met so many wonderful, like-minded students and professors that have taken
personal time to push me to do my best. Honors not only satisfied my thirst for
classroom engagement, but has opened the door to new opportunities and
friendships that have impacted my life for the long-haul. It gave me an
unexpected, panoramic view of campus activities and student-life.” - Isra Eldosougi, Honors

JKW School of Honors and Honors classes are awesome.” - Woo Je Kim, Honors
most fondly remember being surrounded by the some of the brightest and most
driven students I've ever known. Some of us were fresh out of high school and
some of us had taken less direct paths, but those that were a part of Bergen
Honors were motivated to get the most out of their education. For me, the
most significant part of the learning experience was the opportunity to really
connect with professors personally. This was great preparation for moving on to
a huge university like Michigan." - Riordan D’Lasnow, University of
