Lincoln Center Honors Academics

Academics LC HP“Everything about the honors experience has been so incredible. The major thing that the program offers is opportunities, and it's up to you to take advantage of them. The program allows you access to museums, fantastic professors, higher credit limits, a more compact core that leaves you more time to complete your individual studies, and just generally pushes you to do your best.” -Margaret Douglass ‘19

The honors program replaces the core curriculum of Fordham with a program of active, often independent, learning in seminar-style classes. Fordham College at Lincoln Center has one of the premier honors programs in the nation. We don’t take applications; admission into the program is by invitation only. In a class of approximately 18 students, you will receive an unparalleled educational experience, one that will open your heart, stretch your mind, and prepare you for the work of transforming the world. The honors program has its own accelerated core curriculum, allowing students to move more quickly to advanced work. As you progress, the program’s emphasis shifts from coursework to independent research.
