Academics and Honors College
Living Learning Programs
The Honors College Living-Learning Program Citations is an academic distinction and formal acknowledgement of participation in one of Maryland’s Honors College Living-Learning Programs. Students who earn an Honors College Citation wear special cords with their academic regalia at commencement and the Citation is noted on their academic transcripts. The specific requirements for the Honors College Citations vary from program to program but typically require that a student successfully complete all of the course requirements for the program and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2.
Rigorous, enriched, seminar-style courses, that rival offerings from private universities
Honors Seminars go beyond the classroom leveraging unique opportunities for research and study in Washington D.C., the U.S., and abroad. With classes of no more than 20 students, scholars experience learning in an intimate and academically distinguished environment. With professors who are leaders in their fields and the sprawling resources of a Big Ten university, the Honors College offers students an unmatched academic experience.
