About the Program
Montclair State University, comprising four colleges and one school, is New Jersey's fastest growing university dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning. For the serious student, its size and stature represent access to an education that is broad, deep and remarkable in its richness and diversity.
For those accepted into the Honors Program, the undergraduate experience offers an opportunity to work with distinguished faculty on advanced curricular, extracurricular and individual projects. It means greater opportunities for achievement, recognition, and leadership, not only during your undergraduate studies but in the years that follow. Conceived in 1985 by faculty who relish the stimulation of working with exceptional students, the Honors Program has produced graduates who succeed in every field of endeavor. Some of its alumni have gone on to study at Harvard, Yale, and New York Universities, while others have gone on to careers as accountants, art scholars, writers, musicians, illustrators, social workers, business leaders, researchers, and master teachers. It is worth noting that every one of its students who has applied to law school has been admitted.
Regardless of their specialties, passions, or goals, all of these remarkable students found the resources they needed to grow and develop at Montclair State.
