University Honors (UH 101)

UMD's University Honors (UH) program is probably not what you think it is. UH is not a program for elite students to do harder work in their major. Instead UH is designed to bring together a group of students from many different majors, interests, and backgrounds and encourage you all to learn broadly about human nature and society and to engage actively in your community and academics. This is a program for students who value education and want to use that education to affect the world in which we live. UH students are supported to engage in that mission in several ways including, but not limited to, access to small, seminar-style UH classes, up to a $5,000 study abroad scholarship, priority registration for classes, and an entire community of support (UH peers, faculty, and staff) to assist you in achieving your goals. UH is an amazing program designed to point you to success as a student, a citizen, an employee, and as a human being. There are still a few seats available Fall 2024. If you are interested, this workshop is for you!
