Honors Programs and Tracks
Exceptional programs for top level students.
Our competitive Honors Program is geared toward motivated, ambitious LCW students who show exceptional promise and are high achievers in and out of the classroom. Our Integrated Honors Tracks are for students who commit early to specific professional careers in science or education.
Outstanding high school students are invited to apply to LCW's Honors Program, which emphasizes academic excellence, leadership, and community service. Once accepted, honors students benefit from generous scholarships. They participate in advanced, seminar-style courses covering secular and Judaic subjects by renowned scholars and Jewish educators, and enjoy complimentary access to cultural and professional opportunities each semester.
Integrated Honors Tracks
Our Integrated Honors Tracks, designed for outstanding incoming freshman who officially identify their career tracks when they apply, offer students the opportunity to seamlessly transition into one of Touro’s outstanding graduate schools. Students serious about a career in the Health Sciences (including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant programs), Osteopathic Medicine, or Pharmacy may be eligible for the respective Integrated Honors Tracks. Accepted students will receive undergraduate education in their chosen field at Lander College for Women and, after successful completion of their undergraduate education and fulfillment of the necessary pre-requisites, will have the opportunity to seamlessly transition into the respective Touro graduate degree programs: Touro College School of Health Sciences, Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, or Touro College of Pharmacy.
Incoming students interested in allopathic medicine have the opportunity to participate in the Medical Honors Pathway to New York Medical College. Once accepted to Lander College and the Medical Honors Pathway, students will be guaranteed admission to New York Medical College School of Medicine with the opportunity to complete a medical degree in eight years, or seven years if you’ve spent a year in Israel, provided you meet the curriculum, activities and medical school matriculation requirements, while enrolled at Lander College. The Pathway provides mentoring, counseling, assistance with MCAT preparation, and clinical/research opportunities.
Pursuing a degree in education? The Integrated Jewish Childhood Education/Special Education Accelerated Track offers students the opportunity to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Judaic studies from LCW with a Master of Arts degree in Jewish childhood education/special education from Touro's Graduate School of Education.
