Honors Program Overview

The SUNY Cobleskill Honors Program creates a scholastic and social community for students who have proven themselves academically.

"Honors" does not translate as "more work" or "harder"; rather, it is a different kind of work and learning experience. Honors work invites students to think critically and make connections between disciplines for deeper understandings. Ideally, this is the type of work that students can get excited about and feel engaged in.
