Department-Based Honors Courses & Honors Sections

You have the opportunity to take honors sections of traditional courses during your time at Rutgers. These include general courses that often meet core school or major requirements, such as Honors Calculus and Honors Microeconomics, and will provide a smaller, more intensive experience than the traditional, non-honors sections of these courses.

You will also have access to special departmental honors seminars that can fulfill major requirements and offer greater opportunities for high-achieving students to go in-depth into a faculty member’s area of interest.

Finally, you can take honors contract courses. With the prior approval of the course instructor and the Honors College academic dean, you can take sections of traditional courses with an honors contract to perform additional assignments—research, independent study, and more.
