Small Classes, Residential Community
As an Honors College student, you’ll have access to small, discussion-based classes, especially in your first year. You will be able to join a residential community where you live with students who are as excited about learning as you are.

Commonwealth Honors College offers enhanced advising, intellectually stimulating classes, and a supportive framework—and funding opportunities—to enable you to complete an Honors Thesis, the culmination of your learning experience at UMass Amherst.
