More Information

The Curriculum

To complete the University Honors Program, students take a minimum of 30 credit hours in honors courses (designated HON) or their equivalent. Students are expected to maintain an overall index of at least 3.3.  Undergraduates may complete the program's requirements in any of the University's schools and colleges and in any major since honors courses are located primarily in the core curriculum of the University, the course all students at St. John's take.

Honors credit may be obtained in the following ways:

  1. A core curriculum “honors” (HON) designated course
  2. An “honors” designated elective
  3. Either graduate course credits in the student’s field of study, advanced placement credits in core classes, or International Baccalaureate credits
  4. Completion of a non-Honors course with an “Honors Contract” through which an Honors Program student enrolls in a regular course, but makes a prior arrangement with the instructor and Honors Director to complete an additional project reflecting honors work.*
  5. A three-credit research experience, which can be a seminar or independent study course for independent study in the student’s field of concentration*
  6. Honors credits may be earned for study abroad.*

*These options require prior approval by the Honors Program administrators and are limited in number as applicable to the Honors Certificate.

For more information about the University Honors Program, please contact the director at the appropriate campus.
