The Modern World: Global Perspectives, Finding Solutions and Service at Home
The Mission of the Honor’s program is to successfully educate and graduate students who are informed global citizens. The Honors program prepares students to become competent and ethical global citizens by investigating the world beyond our immediate surroundings. We seek to understand, affirm, and articulate other perspectives in order to constructively shape the future by taking action to improve the world globally and locally. We do this in personalized cohort models of nursing, liberal arts and CAP 21 theatre students where you truly get to know your fellow honors classmates and faculty.
The Molloy University Honors Program traverses all majors and provides students with an academic opportunity that thematically integrates diverse disciplines. This program attempts to challenge students across all disciplines by identifying common interests and goals that address the many issues of global concern. The journey begins in the freshman year as participants in the Honors Freshman Learning Community. By the end of the freshman year, the honors students begin to synthesize the components of the program as participants in the international travel experiences and seminars.
During the final semester of the program all Honor students must complete a capstone project in order to graduate with Honors Program distinction. Students who have completed the Honors course work will be matched with a faculty mentor who will assist in helping students design a project that synthesizes knowledge gained from academic and scholarly course work and that of their travel and experiences relative to the program and their major. The Honors students will have the privilege to share their insights with the Molloy Community and the option to submit their work to the National Collegiate Honors Council as well as the Northeast Regional Honors Council.
