Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, glaciers, black sand beaches and lava fields.
Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. During the program, you’ll have the opportunity to explore both the natural landscapes and historical elements of Iceland.
*In November, all students can apply online for the $500 Faculty-led program stipends. Freshman can apply for the $1,000 Freshman Experience Grant. St. Joseph’s College has subsidized the honors study abroad program.
The Long Island Campus of St. Joseph’s College offers eligible entering freshman students the opportunity to participate in a three-semester honors program as part of their bachelor’s degree.
The program provides an enriched and rigorous academic experience, meeting the special needs of those students who have demonstrated extraordinary academic accomplishment and ability and who are committed to achieving their full potential.
St. Joseph’s College recognizes that some students have additional needs due to their superior achievements and intense desire for knowledge. The honors program offers these gifted academic students a community within our larger community. While these students do share some common classes within the honors program, they also take courses outside the program based on their personal choices each semester. This offers them the perfect balance of academic challenge, community, and flexibility to explore new areas and meet new people.
