Honors Program


Brookdale’s Honors program offers challenging, seminar-style classes for high-achieving students.  Through a curriculum that emphasizes global awareness and local engagement, Brookdale Honors students are encouraged to connect their studies to the world beyond the campus.  By fostering collaborative learning and intellectual inquiry, Honors at Brookdale prepares students for transfer to competitive four-year colleges and universities, as well as for citizenship in our 21st century world.  There are two options within the Honors program:

  1. To graduate “With Honors” students must maintain a 3.5 GPA, complete 18 credits of Honors coursework, and present a project or paper at the annual Honors Symposium.
  2. To earn an “Honors Certificate of Recognition,” students must maintain a 3.5 GPA and complete 9 credits of Honors coursework.  Presentation of a project or paper at the annual Honors Symposium is optional.

Brookdale has transfer agreements which enable graduates of the Honors program to enter the third year of Honors programs at Monmouth University and Georgian Court University.  A transfer agreement with Rutgers Business School in New Brunswick enables Honors graduates who are business majors and have completed the required prerequisites, to transfer as juniors.
