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

The Curry College Honors Program brings together a community of motivated, intellectually curious students from different majors who challenge and support each other while working closely with faculty members in both the Honors Program and in their own major fields of study. Honors courses in the first year of study are supplemented with co-curricular meetings where students, peer mentors, and faculty share a meal while listening to a guest speaker, spend a Saturday doing service work, or viewing a film and engaging in discussions related to class.



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

During the first year, students who participate in Honors are eligible to choose to reside in Honors designated housing in one of Curry's residence halls. Within the residential Honors learning community, students gain a deep appreciation of the relevance of the liberal arts to their individual lives and specific academic interests. A theme-based course of study, the Honors Program in the First Year fosters interdisciplinary connections, attention to close critical reading, and supporting students as they develop their analytic and writing skills. 

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 500 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

 
Meet Ellery O'Hara '17 - Criminal Justice

He's big, he's Canadian and he's a hockey player. But Ellery O'Hara '17 has made himself into much more than that at Curry College. The criminal justice major from Toronto is already on a path to a successful career in law after Curry. And for him, it began with focusing on academics from Day One.

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.
