The primary mission of the Honors Program at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore is to offer high-achieving and motivated undergraduates the opportunity to participate in student-centered learning experiences that promote intellectual growth, cultural appreciation, professional focus, leadership development, and civic participation.  

The program also serves the entire University by enhancing the intellectual life of the campus, helping students prepare for graduate and professional school, and serving as a locus for curricular experimentation.

Facilitating the entry of those from underrepresented groups within the state of Maryland is a further priority.
