• The Honors Program at Hudson County Community College

  • Mission:

    The HCCC Honors Program promotes academic excellence in students who are academically gifted, intellectually curious, and highly motivated. We offer small, interdisciplinary courses that focus on problem-based learning, support creative thinking, and encourage students to be active learners. We strive to foster the engaged learning, leadership, adaptability, and understanding necessary to thrive in a diverse world.


    The Honors Program aspires to create a community of diverse, intellectually engaged, creative individuals who are committed to academic excellence and welcome challenges as stepping stones in the path of their own success.


    Challenge – We believe challenges present opportunities for untapped talents to emerge
    Effort– With great effort comes great success
    Inclusivity – We promote a diverse group of students committed to learning
    Engagement – Active engagement within the college and with the community allows knowledge to be put into action for the common good
