The Preyer Honors Program provides motivated students committed to academic excellence with an enriching college experience, regardless of major, in and out of the classroom. Engaged students find that our interdisciplinary honors courses will challenge them to achieve their true potential as critical thinkers, reflective scholars, servant leaders and noble individuals. Outside of the classroom the Preyer Honors Program is a community where curiosity and intellectual risk taking lead to more expansive experiences which challenge, and perhaps change, personal beliefs and world views.
Mission: The Preyer Honors Program seeks to identify intellectually curious and academically adept students and to challenge those students to deepen, broaden, and enhance their Queens education, with a focus on leadership and community engagement.
To complete the program and graduate "with Honors" you must complete all the requirements below while maintaining a 3.25 GPA.
*HNR 110: Honors Gateway Seminar (4cr) (Satisfies the QEN 101 - Rhetoric & Composition --> General Education Requirement)
*If you brought in transfer credit for QEN 101 or came into the program after your first semester you can "honorize" an additional class to substitute. Please reach out to Dr. Pasiali for additional information.
These learning community seminars are not connected to a specific learning community. You will take them the semester you enroll in the general education learning communities. Throughout years 1-3 you will need to complete two (of the three) QLC seminars. Those three options are:
QLC 175H: Honors - Exploring Connections (1cr)
QLC 275H: Honors - Analyzing Disciplines (1cr)
QLC 375H: Honors - Engaing Communities (1cr)
As part of the Preyer's Honors Program you have the choice of receiving credit for two non-Honors courses:
Any course within your department (200-level or above) --> By completing the "My Choice Contract"
Your departmental/major Capstone Course --> By completing the "Department Capstone Contract"
Complete the two courses listed below:
QCP 400H: Honors - Culminating Experience (2cr) (Satisfies the QCP 410 - Honors - Culminating Experience requirement)
