Are you academically gifted? Do you thrive on stimulating course work while striving to be the best you possibly can be? Then, Molloy College welcomes you to apply to our Honors Program. You will find it to be challenging, rigorous and specially designed to help you realize your full potential.

The emphasis of the Honors Program at Molloy College is academic enrichment and your own personal achievement. Our distinctive Program will immerse you in courses that are focused on themes that reflect inter-relationships among disciplines. The course work will take you from the classical to the post-modern period and includes art, political science, literature, music, philosophy, sociology and theology - all of which fulfill the general education requirements. This unique Program is only open to a select group of entering Freshmen.

The key advantage of the Honors Program is the development of a community of active learners who form close personal bonds as they gain guidance and mentoring from an honors faculty devoted to their personal, educational and career advancement. The Honors Program began in 2001 and its history includes an astonishing number of leaders in Student Government and academic successes including three Salutatorians and six Valedictorians at graduation, with many Honors graduates accepted into prestigious graduate programs at top universities.

 

Students in the Honors Program will have the opportunity to travel abroad in May of their freshman year and experience areas of the world relative to the programs theme and design. In May of 2012 and 2013, Honors students traveled to France for ten days with visits to Rouen, a Medieval town where Joan of Arc was put to the stake, Bayeux, for a visit to the massive Bayeux Tapestry depicting the victory of William the Conqueror over the English at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, the Normandy Beaches - where American and Allied troops attacked the Nazi fortifications on D-Day, June 6, 1944 - then to Mont St. Michel, a splendid Gothic Cathedral perched high above the Brittany landscape, to the Cathedral of Chartres, (perhaps the most magnificent of all Gothic cathedrals) and finally, ending the trip in Paris for a extensive three day visit including the Louvre Museum, a trip to Versailles, legendary home to the Bourbon Kings Louis XIV, XV and XVI, a boat trip down the Seine past the Eiffel Tower and a stroll down the fashionable Champs Élysées.
