College Park Scholars is a living and learning community of 12 thematic two-year programs for first- and second-year students.

Each of the programs is designed to study its own interdisciplinary questions from a variety of perspectives. Under the guidance of dedicated faculty, students engage in critical, collaborative, and practical learning, and they integrate that work with the rest of their courses. Program directors are appointed by the programs’ sponsoring colleges.

Programs enroll 70-90 students each year.
