Lincoln Center Honors Academics
“It’s good to have a condensed core because it allows you to pursue more. Many of us have double majors: I think we’re getting the best Fordham has to offer.” Wallis Monday, Class of 2016.
The honors program replaces the core curriculum of Fordham with a program of active, often independent, learning in seminar-style classes.
As a first-year student, you will take courses that introduce you to Fordham’s liberal arts education, delving deep into English literature, philosophy, science, history, theology, and math. Sophomore year includes sacred texts, art history, trends in New York City, and a globalization seminar. Honors classes are frequently supplemented with field trips and extra-curricular events. As a junior, you will participate in a tutorial, internship, research, or semester abroad. Senior honors students participate in a capstone seminar and complete a thesis.
