Welcome to the
Honors College at UMBC!
The Honors College is a selective academic community that deepens UMBC’s commitment to the life of the mind, and seeks to provide a unique academic and social experience for its members.
Our enhanced versions of standard courses and Honors Seminars allow students and faculty to discuss issues and questions in small groups, to write and think across and beyond disciplines, to test their own and others’ ideas, and to make scholarly and social connections they otherwise might not. Students are also encouraged and supported in undertaking independent research, engaging in service learning, studying abroad, and doing internships.
Our students major in all the disciplines on campus, and we encourage applications from new, established and transfer students who wish to be excellent scholars.
