Honors Program

The Molloy College Honors Program's theme is "The Modern World: Global Perspectives, Finding Solutions, and Service at Home".  It is our goal, and higher education's role, to graduate informed and engaged global citizens with an understanding and awareness of diverse cultures; socially responsible learners and leaders. To that end, The Molloy College Honors Program begins with an excursion to Austria as participants in the Salzburg Global Seminar. This program addresses questions that hold the keys to human growth and development.   The seminar challenges students across all regions to rethink their relationships by identifying common interests and goals that address many issues of global concern.

In addition to travel, Honors Program students benefits include, scholarship and presentation opportunities through the National Collegiate Honors Council and The Northeast Regional Honors Council.  For the second consecutive year, two Molloy College Honors students have been selected by the Northeast Regional Honors Council  to present at the NERH Conference in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, April 9-12, 2015. Jessica Buonfrisco, Senior, majoring in Early Childhood Education will lead a round table discussion focusing on how technology will change the education landscape.   Theresa Bissex, Freshman, majoring in Music, will present a paper on "The Ethics of Virtual Reality:  Pornography in the Technological Age".  Last year during the 2014 NERH Conference in Niagara Falls,  Nursing Major, Junior, Nazish Kalid presented "Gender Roles: Formation, Consequences and Possibilities for Change".  Business Major, Senior, Salvatore Ubaldini's topic for the conference was entitled "Emergent Economies and Markets".  Additional benefits include the opportunity to take 18 credits for full-time tuition and all Honors Program students' receive an iPad Tablet.

When choosing Honors Program students, a holistic admissions process is used.  We give consideration to all elements of the application to include GPA, service and test scores.  We feel that the most important component of the process is the essay and personal interview.    The application can be found on this webpage; the password is honors2015.
