Honors Experience

Honors Experience

The Honors Experience requirement is satisfied by completing two academic enhancements or one academic investment. This component gives students an incentive to make the most productive use of their course selections and take advantage of the impressive resources available to all students at Rutgers University – Camden.

Completing the Honors Experience does not require Honors students to complete additional course work beyond what is already required for the bachelor’s degree. Rather, it enables students to use their elective courses thoughtfully and with their postgraduate and professional futures in mind.  

Students have the option of completing two short-term enhancements or a single, more extensive investment that reflects an especially strong academic or professional interest.
