is designed to bring together highly motivated students and dedicated faculty to provide a small university environment within the larger university community. We offer students who are serious about their intellectual and personal growth a variety of special classes enhanced by cultural events, leadership, civic engagement and research opportunities. University Honors (UH) assembles students from across all five colleges at UMD and fosters close meaningful contact between these students, UH faculty, and community leaders.

From the Director
In University Honors, we believe tomorrow’s leaders will be those of you who work hard to learn across disciplines (beyond your chosen major) and develop critical thinking, perspective-taking, communication, and creative skills. The UH curriculum is designed to engage you deeply, both in and out of the classroom, in order to help you develop a broad base of knowledge, skills, and connections, which will set you apart both during and after your undergraduate experience.
If you are serious about your education and love thinking and learning, please visit our Admissions page for more information including how to apply.
