University Honors Program


Sylvie DeLaHuntI am receiving a well-rounded education through courses taught by the top professors at the university to small groups of twenty students equally excited about the seminar topics. It is great to simultaneously have both the personal feel of a liberal arts college and the opportunities of a large research university.

My favorite Honors seminar course was Disability Studies: Stories, Law and Social Policy. The course was amazing and the professor, Dr. Schotland, was very passionate about the topic. As someone looking to go into the medical field, it was valuable for me to learn about the laws surrounding those with disabilities.

Jamil S. ScottMy favorite thing about the Honors College is that I am not just one face in sea of faces. The Honors College emphasizes getting to know students personally.... When I came to UMD for my Banneker/Key interview, everyone in the Honors office was so welcoming and friendly. They took the time to get to know me and I really appreciated that. For me, the Honors College is like a home.
