Oswego Honors Program

The SUNY Oswego Honors Program consists of a core of courses designed to stimulate your intellectual growth and develop your analytical abilities. Unlike traditional courses, which present material from a single field of study, Honors Program courses draw ideas and information from many fields, addressing concerns common to all disciplines and recognizing no boundaries exist to thought and inquiry.

The program emphasizes small classes and the lively exchange of ideas in the classroom. The Honors Program seeks out faculty demonstrating excellence in teaching, special skills in their fields, interest in thinking across disciplines and commitment to working with students in a variety of formal and informal settings.

The Honors Program gives students a chance to experience some of the best faculty in topic-based courses to fulfill the general education requirements. It also allows students to explore their own personal interests in many of these classes and for their honors thesis. In the footsteps of the previous directors, we work very hard to make the program a smaller community within the Oswego campus.
