High-Achieving Students: High-Performing Academics
University Honors (UH) is a campus-wide program that brings together motivated, high-achieving students and faculty from all five colleges. Offering a small university environment within the larger university community, UH allows you to engage deeply in your education to set yourself apart after graduation.
University Honors is designed to bring together highly motivated students and dedicated faculty to provide a small university community within the larger university environment. University Honors is a selective program that welcomes applications from UMD students in all four colleges at UMD. New incoming freshmen, transfer, and current UMD students are eligible to apply.
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 University Honors curriculum is designed to engage you deeply both in and out of the classroom and to help you develop a broad base of knowledge, skills, and connections that will set you apart upon graduation.
