Prospective Students

The Humanities Scholars Program is for talented students with strong intellectual abilities who are passionate about pursuing the study of literature, history, philosophy,  language, and culture. At UMBC, Humanities scholars study the great thinkers of the past and present in light of modern scientific discoveries, popular culture, and current social issues. Scholars discover rich cultural traditions through local community exploration and a semester abroad. Graduates of the program go on to graduate and professional schools and careers in fields such as publishing, law, teaching, business, public services, and medicine.
