The Honors College at MTA is an enriched academic program for exceptionally gifted students who seek an intensive and integrated course of study.  Students enrolled in the Honors College participate in a more rigorous academic schedule that includes lectures, a book project, cultural and religious experiences, and regular seminars.  Through the Honors College, students utilize New York City as an integral part of the classroom experience. The enrichment is centered around student participation in monthly programs and trips to enhance their understanding of religious, historical, artistic, and scientific issues.  Honors College students are currently learning about George Washington’s retreat from Manhattan during the American Revolution.  Last week, these students and their faculty advisors visited the Morris Jumel Mansion, the 18th century Georgian-style home of Roger Morris, where George Washington stayed prior to his retreat.  MTA’s unique location in NYC enables students to participate in experiential learning opportunities like this one.
