Our aim is to promote academic excellence and accomplishment.  We direct high impact programs that elevate the Maryland educational experience, provide students with the mastery necessary to achieve their academic and professional goals, and build strong ties to the University.

The Honors CollegeHonors College is home to Maryland's highly acclaimed programs and courses for students with exceptional academic talents. Honors creates a very special community of faculty and intellectually gifted undergraduates. Honors Living-Learning Programs include the Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students, Digital Cultures and Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Gemstone, Honors Humanities, Integrated Life Sciences, and University Honors. Small classes and outstanding teachers stimulate discussion and foster innovative thinking across academic disciplines. Honors students have exclusive access to Honors living-learning program courses, Honors seminars, and Honors versions of courses offered by the academic departments on campus. Acceptance of first-year students into the Honors College is competitive and by invitation based on each student’s academic qualifications. Many Honors students receive support from scholarships awarded by the University and the Honors College.

College Park ScholarsCollege 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.
