Program Description

LaGuardia Community College's Honors Program is designed to promote a rigorous academic experience for talented, intellectually curious, motivated, and ambitious students (full- or part-time, day or evening). Honors courses emphasize critical thinking, intensive analytical writing, speaking, research skills, including the use of primary source material, and information literacy. One of the fundamental goals of the Honors Program is to promote transfer, with scholarship when possible, to leading public and private 4-year colleges.
