College Park Scholars is a nationally acclaimed living and learning program that offers outstanding students the best features of a small residential college along with the intellectual opportunities available only at a large public research university. Each of its 11 eleven, two-year programs for freshmen and sophomores provides a close-knit community and a challenging academic experience. Students attend weekly, faculty-led colloquia that provoke active discussion and debate. Other courses in the curriculum satisfy General Education requirements. In the second semester of their sophomore year, students choose from independent research projects, service-learning experiences, or internship appointments--both on and off campus--to satisfy their Scholars practicum requirement.
