Honors Program:
Motivated to Move the World

The Iona College Honors program is designed to meet the educational needs of the most highly motivated students at Iona. Grounded in a challenging curriculum, the program offers gifted students the resources and opportunities to develop their talents and to perform at the peak of their capabilities.

The course of study is designed to develop intellectual curiosity, analytic abilities and awareness of ethical and civic responsibilities. The program encourages the development of a small community of independent learners able to inspire each other academically. It fosters a sense of self-respect in students, encouraging them to stretch their abilities in pursuit of lifelong learning, independent thinking and personal fulfillment.

Students currently enrolled at Iona College are welcome to apply to join the Honors Program. Students joining the program must complete the entire Honors Core Curriculum; classes taken to fulfill the General Core Curriculum will not fulfill the Honors requirements.
