Are you interested in a more intensive learning experience?

ARHU’s living and learning programs attract a diversity of highly talented undergraduates with shared interests to live in the same residence hall, take courses together and cultivate relationships with faculty mentors. Many of the living-learning seminars support graduation requirements and utilize faculty from across the college and campus to enrich the student experience.

Curricula vary by program, but all include specialized seminars, extensive co-curricular programming, collaborative research-centered presentations and performances, community outreach such as student-run mentoring and teaching programs, and research practica.

ARHU sponsors the following living and learning programs:

College Park Scholars

Honors College

Jimenez-Porter Writers’ House

Language House

ARHU students also participate in many other living and learning programs available at UMD.
