Queens College presents a number of exciting opportunities to academically accomplished individuals, including the newly created Transfer Honors Program.
Honors at Queens creates a community of learners on campus in which students enjoy classes that are small in size and emphasize discussion and projects over lecture. Honors enhances your education by providing opportunities for faculty mentorship, advanced research or other individualized projects.
