AcademicsCollege is all about exploring your interests, sharpening your skills and rethinking how you think. The academic experience you’ll get at the University of Maryland does all of the above through unique and challenging courses.
U.S. News & World Report ranks us No. 21 among all U.S. public research institutions. That’s because we draw outstanding faculty, attract the brightest students and invest in modern facilities.
In the classroom, our new general education program emphasizes rigor, innovation and creative thinking. But, we believe that learning extends beyond traditional classrooms, so we make it easy to connect with great internships, research opportunities and study abroad. Our highly respected living and learning programs allow you to share housing and classes with peers who have the same interests.
We elevate this experience for our most exceptional students through the Honors College. Students invited to this living and learning program take small and sophisticated courses, work with prestigious faculty and undertake rigorous, rewarding research projects.
Our President’s Promise guarantees every student the opportunity for a special experience that complements the academic curriculum and offers amazing personal growth.
