It's great that Curry has shuttles going into Boston so we could do things like go to Celtics and Bruins games throughout the season.

Honors Program

Honors Program students represent all academic departments and participate in a wide range of clubs and athletics.  Building on the theme of "culture and identity" established by recently retired Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice, Dr. Peter Hainer, the Honors Program prepares students to be "leaders in the profession and in the community."  We aim to develop extraordinary citizens who can effectively negotiate the challenges and opportunities of today's diverse global and digital culture.  



Each year, the Honors Program admits only 68 students into a community of motivated, intellectually curious, and socially engaged students representing every major on campus.  Faculty members from many academic departments serve the program with the purpose of developing "leaders in the profession and in the community." Students begin the Honors Program by registering for First-Year Honors (GE 1000) in the fall and Identity (HON 2850) in the spring. The Honors curriculum fulfills General Education requirements and provides opportunities to take courses at the Honors level in your major or minor.  The program concludes with an Honors project enabling students to work closely with a faculty member in the student's major or minor field of study.

The Honors Program also believes that learning happens outside of the classroom.  Honors students have privileges other Curry College students do not receive.  We serve nearby communities, attend concerts, plays, and art exhibits, invite guest speakers, offer workshops, and celebrate our work at an off-campus weekend retreat.  In short, we are a community of active learners who want to make a difference!  To foster a living and learning environment, a limited number of First-Year Honors students are offered the unique opportunity to be housed with other Honors and First-Year Living Learning Community students. 

The goals of the Honors Program are to enable students to:

  • Develop an informed perspective and a path of inquiry to inform your individual perspective on a number of topics
  • Engage in critical thinking and connections between learning in Honors Program and your major field of study
  • Develop your own voice in relation to what you have come to understand through inquiry, investigation, and research
  • Display evidence of scholarly thinking in an independent project related to a topic of interest within your major or minor fields of study
  • Demonstrate research and communication skills through an Honors project and public presentation of findings
  • Develop scholarly skills and materials that can be highlighted in a portfolio for graduate school or employment following graduation

Students are invited to join the Honors Program at two distinct points in their academic careers:

  1. Incoming students with a high-school GPA of 3.0, a combined SAT score of 1000, and a SAT critical reading score of 540 are invited to join the Honors Program at the point of admission to the College
  2. At the end of the first year, all students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher are invited to complete an application for entry into the Honors Program in the sophomore year

To inquire about the program, please contact:

Meet Jessica Lorento '16 - Psychology

A psychology major with a minor in community health and wellness and an Honors student, Jessica Lorento '16 was looking for an academic experience in which she could have one-on-one relationships with her professors. "When I first got to Curry I met the psychology professors and right away they were super friendly and welcomed me in; that's a huge reason why I came."

Meet Jared Berman '17

"At first you hear the word 'Honors' and you think you'll be constantly stressed about papers and tests, but it's not really like that. It's a lot of discussion-based learning where you are able to hear opinions and ideas from students from all the different majors.  It creates a classroom style that is unlike anything you get in high school. I definitely encourage first-year students to try it,"says Jared Berman '17.
