UMD’s liberal education program prepares students to lead socially responsible lives in an increasingly diverse, complex world. Designed to develop key skills and attributes, the program binds courses together to create a common experience across the disciplines. This creates a more cohesive integration of the liberal arts in conjunction with major-specific courses.

Students may even be eligible to receive financial support. After completing their research project, students present their findings at the annual UMD Undergraduate Research/Artistic Showcase.

The first year on campus is full of discovery, new experiences and, of course, a little bit of stress.

In-classroom freshman seminars enhance the first-year experience, giving students an immediate sense of support and a great start to their university career.
At UMD, giving back to the surrounding community is a central part of the undergraduate experience. In courses that integrate community engagement into the curriculum, students collaborate with local community partners to address community needs while also providing real-life context to their studies.
