The Cabrini University Honors Program is dedicated to honing students' critical-thinking skills, developing creative and imaginative impulses, and pushing them to expand their intellectual horizons.

The Honors Program takes an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to learning that is distinctively different from most other college courses. The program strives to model lifelong learning, giving students the tools they need to succeed in an academic setting and in the after-college world.

Honors Program Details

Specialized Honors courses encourage and expect students to develop and share their own ideas in a climate of intellectual debate and sustained scholarly inquiry. The academic growth of students occurs in the context of dynamic interdisciplinary seminars where smaller class sizes permit a more intimate and intensive learning environment.

Honors classes are designed to help students think on their feet and develop their analytical skills, while being mentored by faculty and challenged by their peers. 

Sample Classes

  • Reacting to the Past, Engaging the Present 
  • Honors Biology: Biological Science I & II
  • Honors Business Administration: Game Theory 


  • An immediate and lasting social bond with fellow Honors students, the Living and Learning Community Student Fellows, the Honors Program Director, and the Assistant Directors, and faculty of the Honors Program—thereby creating a network of resources available throughout Honors students’ college careers
