Honors Program

Honors Program StudentsThe LIU Post Honors Program is designed for academically motivated students of all majors. Students may enter as freshman, sophomores and juniors. Transfer students are welcome.In intimate classroom settings of no more than 20 students, you will participate with faculty in thought-provoking discussions that will challenge and transform you. Study and travel abroad are popular options. A diverse group of students join with faculty in selecting the Honors Program electives. Every student in the program works with a faculty mentor on research leading to an undergraduate thesis in the major. This will be your best professional credential!

The extra-curricular Merit Fellowship provides you with opportunities to visit museums, attend theater performances and concerts, and explore Long Island's preserves and parks. Each year, select students and faculty participate in the LIU Post Honors Conference, which attracts more than 500 students and guests. All students in the Honors Program receive generous scholarships. Both academic and social, the Honors Program is a unique intellectual community that offers exciting opportunities for personal growth.

B.M. Music Education

The Honors Program enriches my educational experience by showing me aspects of culture and life that inspire me on a daily basis. This year I had the opportunity to perform at the keynote lecture which included performances from music students and faculty. This was a great experience that helped me share what I love to do with a very large audience.
