What are Journalism Honors?

At NYU, there are a number of different things that go by the name of “honors.” As a journalism major, you should be aware of the Journalism Institute’s honors program.

Journalism honors are not the same as CAS Presidential Honors (a special program for the top 5% of students at NYU) nor are they the same as Latin Honors (where a high GPA is rewarded by a “cum laude,” “magna cum laude,” or “summa cum laude” on your diploma.) The Institute’s honors program is only available to journalism majors—to you.

Below are links to the Honors project sites, Capstone and Shoeleather, as well as two short videos of past Honors graduates reminiscing about the year-long experience.
