How To Apply

English Honors Application Information


The English Honors Program enrolls 10-20 students each year through a rigorous admissions process. There is no minimum GPA, but most applicants have established a strong track record in the English Department, including in English 301, the gateway course for the major. They have earned the support of an English professor, and they have developed a clear sense of their goals for Honors and beyond. Applicants must be able to commit three full semesters (spring-fall-spring) to the completion of the program. Questions? Contact Jason Rudy (jrrudy@umd.edu), the Director of English Honors. 

The application deadline to start in spring 2019 is November 16, 2018.
