Undergraduate Honors

The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development invites outstanding undergraduate students to challenge themselves intellectually, professionally, and personally. Through our various honors components, students engage in global study with our faculty, conduct independent research, engage in leadership development, and participate in special social and cultural networking activities.

Students who have at least a 3.5 GPA and meet other requirements as specified may participate in the Steinhardt Honors Program as freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors.
